In Montessori education, Indirect Preparation refers to the process by which activities performed in the present consciously prepare the child for future learning. This preparation can occur without the child’s awareness; for instance, a young child may enjoy putting together various triangular shapes, laying the groundwork for a future understanding of geometry. Also known as remote preparation, the deeper educational purpose of many Montessori activities might be not immediately apparent but becomes clear over time.
