Things to Remember

“It is at home, the first environment after prenatal life and birth that the child is going to establish a sense of love and security. Trust in the World.”

“Children are extremely capable if we take the time to adapt their environment.”

– Jeanne-Marie Paynel

“We must help children from the very beginning. We must give them the right environment because they have to adapt themselves to a strange new world. ”

“Any child who is self-sufficient, who can tie his shoes, dress or undress himself, reflects in his joy and sense of achievement the image of human dignity, which is derived from a sense of independence.”

“To assist a child we must provide him with an environment which will enable him to develop freely.  A child is passing through a period of self realization, and it is enough simply to open up the door for him.”

– Dr. Maria Montessori

“Owning less is better than organizing more.”

“Have the courage to build your life around what is really most important to you.”

– Joshua Becker
