Inspiring quotes

Quote

Once children are helped to perceive themselves as authors and inventors, once they are helped to discover the pleasure of inquiry, their motivation and interest explode. (Loris Malaguzzi)

Children as researchers

Our intention is clearly to help children search for and discover parts of their world that may risk remaining hidden. Moreover, we want to be sure that the desires, interests and intelligences and capacity for enjoying and seeking – which are a child’s inborn resource – do not remain buried and unused. (Malaguzzi 1997)

This sums it up for me!
