About AMS Member Schools

While every AMS member school operates independently of our organization, by joining, it becomes a part of the larger Montessori community and can take advantage of the services we offer. Each member school is unique and will vary, from program levels served to curricular and extracurricular offerings, and more. We encourage you to visit and see for yourself.

About the School

Stepping Stones Montessori School nurtures global citizens and guides each child to reach their full potential. Our 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 outstanding educational Montessori environments. Our school’s strength is its unique ability to develop a child’s potential in a nurturing, diverse, and challenging atmosphere that promotes academic excellence and encourages a passion for learning. Since our inception, we have added Infant and Toddler Programs as well as Before- and After-School Care Programs, and we offer environments for children from 12 weeks through middle school. Our farm-based adolescent program features care of chickens and goats, as well as agriculture, botany, and work with water.
