“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. . . At no other age has the child greater need of an intelligent help, and any obstacle that impedes his creative work will lessen the chance he has of achieving perfection.”
– Dr Maria Montessori

Dr. Montessori noticed that children from birth to six have an “absorbent mind”, capable of taking in an enormous amount of new information, therefore making the preschool years the most important for the development of the process of learning.
