At the 25th International Montessori Congress in Sydney 2005, Lynne Lawrence wrote papers called “A Change Within: Removing Obstacles to Development”.
“The child is both a hope and a promise for mankind. If we therefore mind this embryo as our most precious treasure, we will be working for the greatness of humanity”1
Over 50 years after this statement was first published and almost 100 years after the first Casa dei Bambini was established the full impact of these words have still to be realised amongst ourselves and amongst the many agencies who work on behalf of the child.
