Nature Inspired Principles of Education

“It is not enough for the teacher to love the child. She (or he) must first love and understand the universe.”   Maria Montessori, Italian physician and educator

“The principle goal of education is to create men (and women) who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done – men (and women) who are creative, inventive and discoverers.” Jean Piaget, Swiss psychologist and child development specialist.

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” Albert Einstein 

“Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire.” Irish poet, W.B. Yeats

“One of our main goals as educators should be to empower and inspire children to make authentic contributions that will move humanity forward.” Nancy Rosenow, Founder and Executive Director of Dimensions Educational Research Foundation/nature Explore.
