Why Guidepost?

As educators, we believe our role is to support the child's natural growth and to challenge them in age-appropriate ways so that they grow up to be increasingly independent, capable, confident, happy and secure.

The Montessori Method

The Montessori Method of education offers a knowledge-rich environment, through a child-led model. Children learn joyfully, through working with carefully sequenced, hands-on materials. Your child’s enthusiastic exploration naturally leads to a solid foundation and advanced academics.

Close-Knit Community

Guidepost staff and families tend to be friendly and welcoming folks, eager to make connections and form strong bonds. We believe it takes a village to raise a child, and do all we can to foster a strong community in our area, with plenty of fun events and opportunities to meet and mingle.

Global Support Network

Guidepost Montessori offers access to high-quality Montessori education in schools, at-home, or from anywhere around the world. Move seamlessly through our network as the needs of your family change to ensure continuity and consistency in your child's education, wherever you are.

Guidepost Montessori education takes a holistic approach: enabling social, emotional, and physical development alongside academic success

The Guidepost Approach

Educating the whole child

A place where every student feels a sense of belonging, building confidence in the knowledge that their social identity is an asset and not a barrier

The Guidepost Approach

Identity safe classrooms

Teachers choose their moments of instruction wisely, offering lessons and presentations at suitable junctures in each child's development

The Guidepost Approach

A teacher whose job is to guide, not lead

Our teachers follow each child's natural schedule, which encourages them to trust their own bodies

The Guidepost Approach

Respecting the young child's rhythm of life

Children are given the tools and uninterrupted time to work on activities and materials they value

The Guidepost Approach

More study, not less

Children are given the freedom to follow their academic interests, which reduces the need for external motivation

The Guidepost Approach

No need for rewards or punishments

The teacher connects the child with their environment, showing them how to use the learning materials and evaluate their own work

The Guidepost Approach

Independent learning by the child

With the freedom to move and choose their own work, children develop internal discipline and social awareness

The Guidepost Approach

Empowered by choice

Lessons are designed to appeal to each child's level of development and interests
