Welcome to Growing Light Montessori School
Growing Light Montessori School recently entered into a bright new future! For thirteen wonderful years, we have had the privilege of helping to shape the minds of young learners in the Midway – Heber Valley. After years of renting, we were able to build the school of our dreams! Our barn-like building is now located right on Main Street in Midway. We continue to offer the same great Early Childhood Program that families in this community have been counting on for years. Our new location has a much larger playground equipped with a trike path and a covered outdoor classroom area. We are also excited to “grow” our garden curriculum to include raised planters that the children will plant in, shade trees to water on the playground, and even a small orchard!
We are currently accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year.
