what makes us stand out.

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!

The level of care I have received here is above none! They have helped promote my son’s independence and he has excelled in the time he has been there. It is clean, brand new and totally worth every penny. Shelby and Amanda are so wonderful, warm and helpful! I highly recommend Guidepost!

The facility is impeccably clean, creating a welcoming and safe environment for the children. The staff clearly cares deeply about each child's development, offering personalized attention and fostering a nurturing atmosphere. Even my shy 10-month-old wanted to start playing right away. Huge thanks to Shelby, our wonderful guide, for her exceptional care and guidance.

My granddaughters started at this school in October and are doing absolutely amazing! My oldest granddaughter turned 3 in November and she absolutely loves her school!!! She is in the Children's House and her favorite lessons are practical life and math. She particularly enjoys snack prep, making juice and mopping up her "mistakes" or spills. Her absolute favorite activity is flower arranging, she even asks for flowers every time we are at the market now so she can arrange them in a vase! She also loves the sandpaper letters and numbers as she is learning how to read. My younger daughter who turned 1 in November is loving the environment as well. She is so happy and you can tell that her needs and wants are being met by guides who love her. She has gained so much core strength and confidence in moving about the environment freely. I love that they get to explore and learn at their own pace. The school is immaculate and absolutely beautiful. The classrooms are so clean and it is just so impressive how the children know where to put items on the shelves and are such big participants in ensuring their classrooms are well cared for. The guides are wonderful and truly feel like an extension of family. Shelby and Amanda are kind and helpful and keep the school running smoothly and efficiently. I feel so blessed that they found this school and I cannot wait to continue to see them grow and thrive!
