Save on Outdoor Play with LAYERS!

Huge thanks to our friends at for sharing this practical information and for providing outdoor gear for ALL of our students!

At Montessori Nature School, we understand that young children are still developing their internal thermometer. So, it’s up to us (families and teachers) to be sure they’re dressed appropriately for all types of weather. But with so many brands out there and fancy types of gear available, it’s easy to get overwhelmed (and over-spend!).

We’ve come up with a simple solution to make dressing for outdoor play easy. The good news is that you only need 9 PIECES! With these layering basics, your little one will be as comfy (warm/cool/dry) as possible in no time. And even better—save money by combining budget-friendly pieces rather than buying some of the more expensive outdoor gear.
