Our approach is designed to empower each child to achieve independence by combining our hands-on curriculum with personalized learning to create an environment where curiosity flourishes, independence grows, and academic excellence is a natural outcome.

We want your child to see and believe: “I am capable!”

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 capstone Kindergarten year at Guidepost.

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!

Guidepost Galleria is the best choice we've made for our preschooler! He's always excited to go to school, meet his teachers, and friends. Ms. Tamesha is a Godsend. She's super understanding, caring, and patient with my busy boy. She's super passionate and very educated on the Montessori philosophy. If you're looking for a safe place for your LO 10/10 I recommend!

We have been truly blessed with our children's teachers at Guidepost Galleria. Both Ms. Mercy and Ms. Temisha are exceptional teachers who have made an enormous impact on both of our sons' development. Soon after we registered the kids at Guidepost, it was evident that the Montessori model suited our boys' aptitude. The devotion, passion, and dedication shown by our boys' lead guides are nothing short of phenomenal. Temisha and Mercy’s dedication, warmth, and genuine care for the children under their guidance are evident. Both teachers have different but equally effective approaches. They go above and beyond to create a nurturing and stimulating environment for all the kids. Ms. Mercy has settled down our boisterous 5-year-old and has prepared him for the next phase: kindergarten. We will be forever grateful to Ms. Mercy for all she has done for our oldest son. Ms. Temisha has a wonderful ability to engage the children in various activities that promote their learning and social skills. Our son has made remarkable progress under her guidance, both academically and socially. Every day, he eagerly looks forward to going to daycare. Communication with parents from both classrooms is seamless, making us feel like valued partners in our boys' journey. Regular updates on their progress, along with insightful suggestions for techniques to practice at home, show true and consistent dedication and passion for her students. In an environment where passionate educators are hard to come by, we feel incredibly fortunate to have our boys under the care and guidance of Ms. Mercy and Ms. Temisha. Their dedication and ability to engage with the students make them the most valuable assets at Guidepost Montessori Galleria. We wholeheartedly recommend Guidepost Galleria to any parent seeking a nurturing and exceptional educational experience for their child.

My daughter has been with Guidepost since she was in the Nido classroom and is now in Children’s House. She has learned so much and talks very well for her age. Any time I have any questions, concerns, or recommendations leadership is always there to assist. All the staff is exceptional. My daughter went through a short stage where she began to cry at drop off but Ms. Mercy worked endlessly with me to help her have a smooth transition into her new classroom. She now walks into her classroom super excited to see her friends and will ask for Ms. Mercy even on the weekends! We have connected with many other parents during our journey at Guidepost. It truly is a great community to be a part of!
