A peek inside our classrooms

"Guidepost has been a perfect fit for our pre-schooler! The staff at Guidepost are truly amazing. The guides are compassionate, understanding, and informative. I love the app they use to provide daily updates about about what my little one is learning. Since enrolling at Guidepost, my daughter's independence has increased, she's learned skills to more effectively express her emotions when she's upset, and she has learned so many things!"

"My 4 year old is in children's house here and is SO happy to go to school and "work" everyday. His vocabulary, independence and his interest in the world and art all began here. Their authentic Montessori methods are unlike any other Montessori schools around!"
