Welcome to A Growing Place Montessori School in St. Louis

Fostering a love of learning in young children in a warm and encouraging environment is the goal of A Growing Place Montessori School. Our program is designed to meet the needs of young children from ages 3 to 6 years. We are located on Forsyth Boulevard at Big Bend, convenient to Washington University, Clayton, University City, and surrounding neighborhoods.

Our classroom provides children with an opportunity to direct their own learning at their own pace. Children may choose to work independently, participate in small groups, or watch the learning activities of other children around them. Notable features of our school include an emphasis on the natural world, appreciation for many different cultures and heritages, peace education, and earth-friendly practices. All our teachers are Montessori certified. Morning and afternoon sessions are available. Our school is a member of the American Montessori Society.

Established in 1975, A Growing Place Montessori School has been successfully offering children the joy of learning through the Montessori method of education for over 40 years. The sequential learning materials move the children toward new discoveries so that each child can blossom and say, “I did it myself!”
