Stepping Stones Casual


The child who has never learned to act alone, to direct his own actions, to govern her own will, grows into an adult who is easily led and must always lean upon others.

Maria Montessori

A child’s work is to create the man he will become. An adult works to perfect the environment but a child works to perfect himself.

Maria Montessori

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.

Maria Montessori

Focus on the child’s needs within the context of family by recognising and responding to the unique influence that a family has in a child’s life; by working in partnership with families in meeting the child’s individual needs.

Maria Montessori

A place of beauty,simplicity and order. A place where they feel secure to trust their own powers.

Maria Montessori

Never let a child risk failure until he has a reasonable chance of success.

Maria Montessori

Movement is another of the child’s great acquisitions.

Maria Montessori

The child can only develop by means of experience in his environment.
