At Growing Light…

Growing Light Montessori school is a family owned and operated school with multiple locations across the Bay Area. We have been serving families with Montessori Education since 1986. We create a nurturing environment that supports the natural curiosity and creativity of each child, while stimulating their inherent love of learning. The classrooms are tailored to meet the needs and interests of the individual child and emphasis is given to the development of the physical, emotional, social, and academic skills providing a powerful educational foundation and enthusiastically preparing them for a fulfilling, self-expressed and productive life.

  • Teaching students respect and responsibility for one another through clear communication and by treating each other with graciousness and generosity.
