Object permanence box with drawer / Montessori infant & toddler material – Nienhuis Montessori
The rectangular Nienhuis Montessori object permanence box with drawer is part of the infant and toddler material. It is entirely made of wood and includes one small plastic ball. Playing a significant role in cognitive development, object permanence is to understand that objects continue to exist even when they are unseen or unheard. In order to be able to so, the infant first must develop a mental representation of objects which begins to emerge between 18 and 24 months. Around that age the child is ready to understand object permanence as they are able to form mental representations of objects.
The object permanence box with drawer invites the child to insert the small ball in the hole and to slide open the drawer to expose it, thus practising eye-hand coordination and becoming familiar with object permanence.
