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.

You are invited to learn about our Montessori programs for Infant through 6th grade.  Wednesday, February 8th from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Children are welcome to attend.  Contact the office at or call (616) 451-8627 for more information or to RSVP.


We are currently accepting applications for the 2017-18 Academic Year.  In order to be considered, parents must attend a tour or contact the office.

If interested, parents should:

1. Attend a tour of the school. Tours are regularly offered on Wednesday mornings at 9 AM. Tours last 45-60 minutes and are designed for adults to get a sense of the school, our philosophy, and for us to understand better what you, as a parent are seeking.

2. Schedule a classroom observation by emailing the office at or calling (616) 451-8627.

3. Complete an online application.

Re-enrollment for current families will begin on January 25, 2017. Re-enrollment will close on February 21, 2017. After that date, we cannot guarantee a spot for current students in our program.

Open enrollment for the 2017-18 year has started. Applications will remain open through March 21. Applications will be considered at that time based on the following priority:

  1. Current Students
  2. Siblings of Current Students
  3. Students with Montessori Experience
  4. Other students with a priority on establishing an optimal mix of ages

After March 21, applications will be considered for rolling enrollment on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to availability.

Montessori Notes

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.
