Celebrating Grandparents Day at Guidepost Montessori

Children across the network created heartwarming memories with their grandparents (and great grandparents!) in honor of Grandparents Day

Last week, at schools across the Guidepost Montessori network, we celebrated intergenerational love and learning in honor of Grandparents Day, which was Sunday, September 10. Children eagerly welcomed their grandparents into the classrooms, creating heartwarming moments through a variety of fun and educational activities. Following are photos from a handful of campuses that capture the essence of the day.

Our Grandparents Day celebrations are shining examples of how we aim to engage families and create a deep sense of community on our campuses. We’re looking forward to many more special events and celebrations with Guidepost families in the weeks and months to come!
