How is the Guidepost Montessori approach different from conventional education?.

At Guidepost, we join with parents on their mission to help their child grow and live well. Together, we design an education to empower each child to build the knowledge, skills, and confidence she needs to craft an independent, flourishing life.

Though there are many differences between the conventional approach and Guidepost, here are some of the most important:

Conventional Education vs Guidepost Montessori
What is the Guidepost Mission?.

At Guidepost, our mission is to support each child in achieving her own independence. To do this, we help her gain the knowledge, build the skills, and craft the personal character she needs to flourish. Above all, our goal is to cultivate joy—in the pursuit of knowledge, in effort applied to work worth doing, in the achievements of herself and others, and in taking the steps to author her own life.

What are the outcomes of your programs?.

Montessori education is known world-wide for having positive impacts on both academics and social and emotional skills.

At Guidepost Montessori, when we design an environment to meet the developmental needs and interests of children alongside personalized care and support, the child can learn advanced skills at an accelerated pace.

Our students, for example, regularly learn to read by the time they’re 4-years-old and can perform all four math operations with 4-digit numbers by the end of their Kindergarten year.

The language and math skills of our kindergartners are on a par with what children in conventional programs learn in 3rd grade or beyond! What’s more, our students learn advanced academics joyfully—while simultaneously developing deep focus, self-discipline, and positive social skills.

Do your programs include Kindergarten?.

Yes! The third year of our Children’s House program, designed for 3- to 6-year-olds, is the capstone kindergarten year. In this year, the child has been well-prepared to experience an explosion of literacy, learn advanced math concepts, and use her hard-won ability to focus, problem-solve, and persist through challenges to then make advanced gains across the curriculum. Children who continue with Guidepost through Kindergarten are often well-ahead of their peers when they enter 1st grade.

Learn more about the next exciting stage: the Guidepost elementary program.

Following elementary, students continue on to our Montessori middle and high school, the Academy of Thought & Industry: a school that combines a classical liberal arts emphasis on history and great books, and a Montessori emphasis on independence and agency.

How does Guidepost partner with parents?.

At Guidepost, we want to make the best education the best for children and parents. This is why we provide year-round, extended-day programming at no extra cost, enabling consistent and uninterrupted access to the care and developmental support parents expect. We invite you into your child’s world—with daily photo and video updates, regular milestone meetings, and parent-child events that showcase your child’s progress. We work to understand your unique context and needs, so that we can provide support for milestones at home as well as at school.

In everything we do, we strive to cultivate joy as you watch your child grow!

This place is AWESOME! Our daughter O is in Ms Prax and Ms Martha's class and loves it. The teachers are VERY hands on with everything and have a genuine care for the kids. This goes for ALL the staff! 'Good mornings' and 'hellos' are plentiful, even from teachers we don't know. It's nice to take our kid to a school that feels more like an experience, rather than a babysitter. 6 stars if we could :)

Guidepost Montessori at Aurora has been a life changing experience for our family! Every morning my daughter is excited about going to school. She has gained numerous everyday life skills in addition to being exposed to learning a new language, Spanish, since she was less than 3 years old. The Guides, Assistant Guides, Directors are all so caring and kind to the children and families.

Our daughters have had a great experience at this school! Ms. Martha and Ms. Prax have been fantastic for my preschooler. My younger daughter loves her teacher Ms. Samia who is so caring and attentive. All the staff are very helpful, especially Ms. Dae. She is both knowledgeable and a warm/friendly presence. We have been very happy here and love the Montessori method for our girls.

My almost 3 year old really enjoys school here. He has been going for 3 months to Ms. Mirsa’s toddler room. He is well cared for there and has learned a lot. I appreciate the updates and photos we get throughout the day. He talks at length every evening about his day, his teachers and friends there. He is moving up to Ms. Megan’s class next week and they have prepared him well for the move by having him spent time in that class and with his new teacher. He is excited to be with the “big kids”, but I know he’ll miss the little ones and his sweet teachers, Ms. Mirsa and Ms. Rhoda. I also appreciate the well balanced meals they make at Guidepost and the outdoor time the kids get twice a day.

I can't see enough good things about this school. My kids have been attending for years now and I truly have have no complaints. They are well taught, well treated, well respected, and the list goes on. All the teachers are fantastic but a special shout out to Ms Megan and Ms Kumiko. Highly recommend!!
