Welcome to Stepping Stones Montessori School

Cultivating a Lifelong Love of Learning

Our Mission

Stepping Stones Montessori School nurtures global citizens and guides each child to reach their own unique potential.

We Are

Founded in Partnership

Rooted in Montessori

Focused on the Child

A Place for Joyful Learning

Are you looking for something different for your child? If you're interested in an education that focuses on your child's innate joy for discovery and that emphasizes critical thinking, we would love to talk with you. For more than 35 years, Stepping Stones Montessori School has encouraged children in Grand Rapids to harness their potential and nurture their innate curiosity.


Stepping Stones Montessori School was founded in 1983 by a dedicated group of parents and Montessori educators who recognized the benefits that a sound, individualized, and continuous Montessori program can offer a child. Today, as the oldest private Montessori school in Grand Rapids, Stepping Stones Montessori continues to provide an outstanding educational environment.
