We must credit the child with enormous potential and the children must feel that trust. The teacher must give up all [their] preconceived notions and accept the child as a co-constructor. [This means] a willingness to question all your own abilities, your knowledge, to become humble. Only then will you be able to listen to the child, to set off on a common search, to ‘educate each other together’.
– Loris Malaguzzi, 1992
