Her main contribution to pedagogy was to discover the secret of childhood, that is, the potential of the child and his ability to learn effortlessly, to build himself and adapt to the historical moment and the environment that surrounds him.
This approach also emphasizes that the only way to achieve social transformation is to educate for peace, which begins by understanding the child’s needs and responding to them with respect; In addition, a harmonious coexistence between the child and the adult is favored.
