How the Children's House program can support your child 2.5 to 6 years old
Freedom of choice
Space to focus
The teacher shows each child how to use the learning materials, so that they can work for large chunks of peaceful, uninterrupted time, which helps build concentration-a useful skill they will take into adulthood.
With the freedom to move around the classroom and choose their own work, children develop internal discipline and social awareness. It also helps them develop a "growth mindset", by tackling new challenges.
Children who attend Guidepost Montessori schools receive individual lessons from their teacher and learn at their own pace. They set the bar higher in terms of academic achievement.
Children enter the classroom at 2.5 years old and are inspired by their older classmates. As they grow, they become the classroom leaders they once looked up to, embracing opportunities to lead and teach their peers.
In a Montessori classroom, the child finds themselves surrounded by opportunities to try something new or develop a new skill. Guidepost Montessori also organizes field trips and extracurricular activities.
All these things (and more!) come together to offer young children a real-life education
