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!

We are proud to be one of the first families to join Guidepost Montessori at Mansfield in the toddler environment when it first opened back in January 2023 and now my son has transition to the Children’s House. Prior to joining Guidepost our son attended two traditional schools and we are happy to say that our experience has been extremely positive and enrolling our son at Guidepost was the best decision for his development! The entire staff on campus is caring, patient, and attentive. We’re especially thankful to Mrs. Brianna, Mrs. Chasity, Mrs. Hailey, Mrs. Jasmine, Mrs. Hannah for the open communication, support, kindness and care they’ve provided to our son and family. We are grateful and appreciative of all of you!

After having a less than ideal experience with our prior daycare, we were skeptical and critical while looking for a new daycare for our toddler. Upon the first visit, we were greeted by extremely the warm and professional staff. The building is clean, organized and the teachers have a solid foundation on the Montessori values. We loved that the staff has a high retention rate and had a passion for childcare. We decided to enroll our son and we have been very happy! Our child learns so much and thrives in his new environment! We are proud Guidepost parents now! Thank you to all the staff for making this experience wonderful!

I have nothing but great things to say about Guidepost in Mansfield. It is so hard to find GOOD childcare with people you trust. Our son had gone to a different childcare in the area and it wasn’t going well and then we toured and enrolled when Guidepost opened. My son is a totally different child now, in the best way. He’s so much happier. Ms Hailey and the staff have really put so much effort and care into loving and pouring into our sweet boy and helping him grow. The entire staff is really wonderful and friendly! I couldn’t love it more here.

We are so happy to have found Guidepost Montessori, we really didn’t need to send our little one to daycare but we felt like he was falling behind on his milestones and we wanted to find the best place for his development. We realized we made the right decision just a couple of weeks after he started going! He is now a new kid! He’s become so independent and friendly. We can tell he LOOOOVES his guide Mrs Lauren and that makes us feel very comfortable every day knowing he’s in good hands. Overall, we recommend Guidepost Montessori at Mansfield 100%, the staff is so kind and they really care for the children.

After visiting numerous schools, we committed to Guidepost because the administrative staff was thorough and honest, the facility was inviting, and the guides exhibited true care and passion for the children. As a first time mom, I wanted my child to be in an environment that fueled his natural interest and influenced his independence. Guidepost has done just that. He’s excited to go to everyday. Im so grateful to everyone at Guidepost for the care they provide my child. It is a beautiful community that we are honored to be apart of.

My son went to Guidepost Montessori at Mansfield for a couple of months until we had to move away to another city. My son always looked forward to going to school and meeting friends and teachers from his classroom. We noted he was learning new words every day and becoming more independent in life skills. All the teachers including the administrators, Ms. Briana and Ms. Chasity, are so caring and great to work with!

We waited as long as possible before putting our baby in daycare because we weren’t comfortable with the idea of leaving him with people that weren’t family. Guidepost has exceeded all of our expectations from day one! The administrators are great at communicating and the guides are amazing! Everyone is so kind and it feels like a little family. My son absolutely loves going to Guidepost and we are so thankful to have found such caring people. They have helped us feel so comfortable that we have even enrolled our second baby at a young age, something we said we would never do. We had tried a daycare before finding Guidepost and it was not a good experience so we were very hesitant to try a new place. It is a night and day difference and I cannot recommend this place enough!

I LOVE this school. I didn’t know much about this method of child development but I’m happy to say it works for my son! Miss D’onna is amazing and she and Mrs. Briana the director were able to get my son to consistently walk! All of the teachers here are so sweet and patient and they make sure my son is in a happy safe environment and give me regular check ins with photos.

We love Guidepost! We have been to a couple different places before Guidepost, and they don’t measure up to the quality of care we receive here. Would recommend for anyone considering!
