Things to Remember

“There’s no better tool for mindfulness than parenting.”

“The child is guiding us, showing us what they’re hungry to learn.”

“Be confident that you’re making the right choices with your parenting.”

“Play and learning can be such a place of joy.”

“Invest in those early years, it will pay off.”

Jessica Rolph

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” – Fred Rogers

“We must help the child to act for himself, will for himself, think for himself; this is the art of those who aspire to serve the spirit.”

“The word education must not be understood in the sense of teaching but of assisting the psychological development of the child.”

Dr. Maria Montessori
