This is one of my favorite quotes about the Montessori philosophy. If you have exchanged e-mails with me, you have probably seen this quote below my signature.
I truly believe the same as Marquez: Montessori lets children explore and discover for themselves the wonders this world has to offer. It ignites a flame in them, a desire to learn and experience more.
As parents, it's our job to fan that flame, by creating a home environment that stimulates growth and by modeling being a lifelong learner.
Colombian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won a Nobel Prize in Literature, credits many of his successes to his Montessori education, noting that before Montessori school, he struggled to read, and found the phonetic way of learning the sounds of letters extremely helpful.
