Welcome to Growing Light Montessori School

Growing Light Montessori School recently entered into a bright new future! For fifteen 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 2018-2019 school year. Please read about our Enrollment Process and Educational Programs for more information.

  • We could think of no better place to give our kids a head start in life.  Our two sons attended Growing Light Montessori School for a combined eight years—from pre-school through all-day Kindergarten.  It was amazing to watch them grow from timid toddlers into confident leaders in the classroom thanks to Growing Light’s brilliant program and supremely talented teachers.

    We are so thankful for how our children were safely embraced, nurtured, supported, and encouraged to grow by the teachers. Our children were excited to go to school and learn new things each day.  They developed very strong academic skills as well as invaluable life skills like how to use their words to communicate with their teachers and fellow students.

    The combination of the Montessori teaching methods and philosophy, along with the extraordinarily talented teachers, has allowed our children to excel both academically and personally.  We feel like we received tremendous value for the investment we made in our sons’ education at Growing Light.  Thank you so much Growing Light Montessori!

  • All three of our children have now graduated from Growing Light Montessori! Our boys are now 15, 10, and 6 years-old and we have absolutely loved being a part of this early development program since the beginning years of this school. We have had the opportunity of watching Growing Light’s successful growth and have witnessed many families and their children benefit from this educational experience. Our children have walked into elementary school not only extremely academically prepared, but also with problem solving skills for social, mental, and emotional success. Children at montessori do not have class separated by age, but instead have experiences gained by mingling alongside children of all ages, thus learning to look up to others plus the important skill of being a good leader and example. Children here learn to respect the earth and study cultures and people. They learn how to be friends and say sorry. They study math and language as well as everyday practical skills. Perhaps the greatest thing we have appreciated all the years we have been involved is simply having the confidence that where our children are spending their day is an environment of love. The owners and all the teachers at this school have genuine, beautiful hearts and are committed to offering the children the absolute best experience in early childhood development.

  • Growing Light Montessori School has provided our son with an enriched environment that has allowed him to grow and blossom at his own pace. We have loved the breadth and depth in his learning.  He constantly surprises us with his knowledge and exposure to poetry and literature, science, geography, math, yoga, reading, household tasks, social skills and the list goes on.  We have loved watching his progress over the last three years at Growling Light.

  • “The best decision we have made regarding our son, Sawyer, was enrolling him at Growing Light Montessori.  He attended 2 preschool years and his Kindergarten year under the supervision of four wonderful mentors – Mrs. Stafford, Mrs. Harrigan, Mrs. Probst and Mrs. DeBothelo.  He began as a shy little boy who flourished in the Montessori program and grew into a young man with leadership skills, sense of structure and a motivation to learn. We cherish the friendships we made through the Growing Light community and highly recommend this school for your child.”
