In Montessori education, Help from Periphery refers to the approach of presenting objects and activities in a way that encourages purposeful movement from the child. The periphery here denotes the part of the child that interacts with external reality through the senses and movement. This approach operates under the belief that we should engage the child’s hands and physical interaction as much as their visual perception, thus promoting active, hands-on learning.
