“Helping  Children Help Themselves” Dr. Montessori believed that no human being is ever educated by another person. The child must do it by himself or it will never be done.The Montessori objective is approached by first allowing each child to experience the excitement of learning by his own choice, rather than being forced. Secondly, the Montessori objective is to help the child to perfect all their natural tools for learning so that they will maximize future learning situations.  “It is the child who makes the man, and no man exists who was not made by the child he once was." Maria Montessori
