L’École Montessori Internationale 


"Whereas before the little child absorbed the world just by looking around him, carried hither and thither, observing every thing with keen interest, he now shows an irresistible desire to touch everything and linger over things. He is continually busy, happy, and active with his hands. His intelligence is no longer developed by the mere fact of living: he needs his environment to offer him motives for activity."
