Stepping Stones Montessori School does not discriminate in admissions, placement, or its educational programs or activities, based on gender, gender identity, sexual preference, race, religion, national origin, height, weight, color, creed, or disability unrelated to the child's ability to participate, with or without accommodation, in the essential activities of the School.
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.
