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!

We have attended Guidepost Montessori at Prosperity since 2018. They navigated through COVID bringing us stability. Daily they offer excellent care and attention for our family. Their Spanish immersion programs are what drew us to Guidepost and we have learned the value of a Montessori education. They offer immersion through Kindergarten and Bilingual program from first grade - elementary. All have been transformational for our children. The guides are like family and work with the parents in a collaborative way. Administration always looks for ways to accommodate the needs of families. We highly recommend Guidepost at Prosperity.

Great Montessori program. After attending for 2 months, Lucas was potty trained @ 26 months. He became very independent. His language skills skyrocketed(bi-lingual). His classroom guides are kind, passionate about Montessori teaching and great at communications. We appreciate everything the guides and the staff members do to run such a high quality Montessori program in the area.

Great Montessori School! My two daughters love coming to Guidepost and a lot has to do with the amazing group of teachers. The guides (how they call them) are passionate educators that respect children and help them thrive. My youngest daughter recently transitioned from Children’s House to Elementary, we believe that the strong foundation she acquired during her Montessori preschool years have helped her develop a love for learning that will last a lifetime. We are very thankful to Guidepost at Prosperity, being part of this community has been a wonderful experience for our entire family.

Our daughter has been here several weeks now and I have established a level of trust and confidence in this school that has certainly exceeded my expectations. I think the guide/lead teacher and other staff are doing an amazing job and we have seen increased independence and growth in just 3 days a week! I was somewhat dissuaded by prior reviews but have been extremely impressed with the communication and our experience. The bilingual and Spanish immersion classes are a plus! Love the app where we can track her progress!!

discover the benefits of our spanish immersion programs.

Children under the age of six absorb language effortlessly, which is why we are pleased to offer bilingual environments. In our Spanish Immersion program, children learn both Spanish and English literacy skills, however, the prevailing language spoken throughout the day is Spanish. The overall emphasis on Spanish rapidly increases fluency, as children feel naturally compelled to communicate with their Spanish-speaking guides. Learn more about our Spanish Immersion program here
