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.

Learn about the key milestones we support—from infancy through high school.

Read more about why we educate for independence, and how we support independence for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary-age children.

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!

Words can NOT express how grateful I am to have both of my sons at Guidepost Montessori! They strictly follow all Covid-19 guidelines which puts my mind to ease. Both of my sons spend our entire commute home telling me about all of the fun and engaging activities they did for the day. All of the teachers and staff are friendly and go out of their way to provide a warm and caring learning environment. The campus is beautiful! They have several amazing outdoor areas and always keep us informed of our children's progress both in person, Via zoom meetings and through their very cool Transparent Classroom which shares pictures and activities that have been done for each child. We can not recommend them enough!

Guidepost and their incredible Guides (major shout outs to Briana, Becca, Tina, Jenny, Rabia, Jennifer and Anna-Marie) have become our extended family. When we first put our two children here we were skeptical- we had had a really negative experience at a more traditional daycare and we were one of the inaugural families at this campus so we just really didn’t know what to expect. This community is absolutely incredible, so welcoming, compassionate, and empathetic. They treat our children as if they are the most cherished members of their own families and have partnered with us to nurture independence, foster confidence and inspire a life long love for learning+exploring.

We were one of the inaugural families at Guidepost. Our daughter was three when she joined in January of 2020. We were immediately happy with our enrollment decision. The atmosphere is calm and nurturing. The staff are amazing and patient and smart - clearly skilled at interacting to best support the student, their needs, and their development/age. And with COVID and everything else 2020 has thrown at us, GP has been open, dependable, safe, and flexible as families' needs change. We feel very lucky to be part of this community. Additionally, as a LGBTQA family, we feel welcomed and supported. Everyone here is very adept at inclusive language, and creating an inclusive environment, which means a lot to us.

Guidepost Montessori has changed our child’s way of learning. Our child enjoys going every day to school and sharing with us the daily activities, songs, and poems he learns in the classroom. We are also able to see his progress and growth with the weekly pictures and updates of the lessons he receives. The teachers are warm, friendly and together they provide a great environment for our child’s development. We are so thankful to find Guidepost Montessori and our child is so happy to be there!

We moved from the east coast to Oregon and Guidepost has really helped in our family’s transitional move. My son enjoys working with all of his teachers and speaks very highly of them and the friends he has made in the 9 months we have lived in here. We are grateful to have found the Guidepost community.

Our 4 year old son started at Guidepost about 6 months ago. His teachers are amazing and my son loves being at school here. We get lots of photos and weekly updates. There are plenty of parent/student planned activities that help get to know the staff and other kids/parents which is nice. The new head of school started shortly after us and has brought a great positive energy and structure to the school also.
