Welcome to The Prepared Nest Shop!

Many of you have seen these items on The Prepared Nest Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook sites. The Prepared Nest was created to share Montessori inspiration at home. A home is not a classroom, however it is the child’s first learning environment and greatest influence in his/her development.

We believe in transparency
