Hear from our Kendall Park Families
I enrolled my daughter at just 6 months old. As a new mom I was nervous and skeptical of leaving her at a daycare after the horror stories I'd heard. After touring many daycares. I found Guidepost, specifically the Kendall Park location. Dr. Ali is warm, compassionate, patient and truly loves what she does. Everyone at Guidepost is hands-on, willing to help and well-trained. They were understanding and considerate of my new mom jitters and went out of their way to provide me with additional updates during my daughter's transition. My daughter is now 11 months and developmentally I've seen leaps in her skill sets. They truly meet your child where they are and challenge them daily! I couldn't have wished for a better daycare!
"Guidepost has been a perfect fit"
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 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! Each day on our drive home she tells me about her daily artwork, the fun playground, and the new lessons she learned. Aside from the education component, the community is phenomenal. The school has hosted multiple virtual events, including pumpkin painting and hot cocoa in October and a book fair!
"The best decision we have made"
Enrolling our daughter at Guidepost has been THE BEST decision we have made. We were nervous because she is so young and due to COVID, hadn't been around many other children or had any experience in a school environment but the administrators and guides at Guidepost were welcoming, patient, helpful and kind. After only 3 weeks, our daughter LOVES school and can't wait to go each morning. And we see her developing new skills in front of our eyes. We could not be happier with our experience at Guidepost!
Changing the world, one student at a time
We are a school where children find the joy in learning — and thus make it possible for them to continue learning for the rest of their lives.
To think mathematically.
To solve problems.
To create things.
To encounter great literature that inspires their character development.
To build themselves as capable, efficacious beings.
To place themselves in history and in society.
To spark meaningful friendships and deep personal values that last a lifetime.
Our goal at Guidepost Montessori is to serve each individual child, to help them realize their limitless potential, and the opportunities they will have to create real and lasting change throughout their lifetime.
