The writings of Maria Montessori are for parents as well as teachers. She believed that “Education must start at birth” and that parents “Are the first and most important teachers.”

Montessori, as well as other child development experts, believe that a child’s first six years are the foundation for all future learning. What a powerful way of stating how influential parents are on their children.

No matter the family structure, each child from zero to six years old takes in the sights, sounds, language, tensions, arguments, laughter and love that surrounds them. Maria Montessori called this — The Absorbent Mind.
