"Helping Children get off to a Good Start" Every child has in him something divine, something his own , a chance of perfection and strength in however small a sphere . The task is to find it , develop it and use it. The chief aim of education should be to help the growing soul draw out that in itself which is best and makes it perfect for a noble use.
