Object permanence involves being aware that objects continue to exist when they are no longer in view. According to Piaget, objective permanence develops at around 8 months of age, which is during the sensorimotor stage of intellectual development. Prior to that age, an infant will lose interest in an object if it is hidden, and Piaget claimed that this was because they assume it no longer exists (‘out of sight, out of mind’).
