Welcome to Growing Light


Our location - 474 East Main Street in Midway

Established in 2002, Growing Light Montessori School is in Midway, UT. The charming red building contains an open classroom in which the children can easily move about and select "works" which they are interested in mastering.  Because we are located in a renovated home, we truly embody what Maria Montessori called "Casa de Bambini",  a childrens house.  The space is filled with lots of natural light, love, and laughter.   We have an enclosed outdoor play area that allows the children to socialize.

We follow the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori and are for children ages 3-6 years old. Our teacher to student ratio is 1:10 with a maximum of 20 students. Our programs are either full-day or half-day depending on the age and readiness of the child. Because a child usually continues in our program for 3 years or more, we are an intimate school, knowing the parents and other siblings well. We often have "school social"s outside of designated school activities.
