Accelerate your child's love of learning.

Guidepost Montessori helps your child develop a fundamental, enduring love of learning and attain the deeply ingrained social, emotional, and academic skills they need to thrive as adults. Our approach combines highly intentional learning materials, an individualized curriculum, exceptional guides (teachers), and a joyous approach to practiced independence.


It is our mission to empower and equip your child with the knowledge, confidence, and agency needed to reach their highest potential.

Our curriculum is designed to foster development and independence.

Preparing Children for Life

Flexible Curriculum

Mixed-Age Classrooms

Montessori students overtake children who attend other kinds of schools in academic achievement and social and emotional development. They develop lifelong skills, such as a growth mindset and self-confidence.

In our programs learning is structured and sequential, while still providing the flexibility to individualize lessons to meet each child’s needs. This could mean providing extra attention when a child is struggling or challenging high-achievers to excel beyond their age level.

Mixed-age classrooms give the older children a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills, while the younger children benefit from socializing with older children. All students enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship as they advance through the program.


Real-Time Assessment

Students explore subjects at their own pace during a work period that enables uninterrupted focus. A young child may work on a task for a few minutes, but an older student may work for hours. This daily "work cycle" is part of the curriculum to develop concentration skills and the ability to self-direct.

A Montessori guide circulates the classroom to assess and support each child, one-on-one. Our guides don’t depend on performance testing to gauge skill level. Thanks to our small class sizes, guides (teachers) have a close understanding of where each child is at, and their readiness to move on to the next stage.

There is a better way. 

Our programs offer your child a wealth of possibilities!  Here are some examples of how a Guidepost school is different from a traditional school.

At Traditional Schools:

At Guidepost Schools:

There's a follow-the-crowd mentality

Children develop a sense of independence

Reading and writing by 6 years old

Reading and writing at 4 years old

Same-age classrooms, where children tend to compare themselves with others

Mixed-age classrooms, where children develop leadership skills at a young age

Each child follows their own curiosity,

supported by a guide

The teacher directs the class

Everyone learns the same topic at the same time, at the same pace

Each child is given support when needed, but also has the freedom to excel

There are rows of desks facing a teacher at the front of the classroom

Children sit in groups and collaborate

Students don't do homework, but learn how

to plan their work and time

Students are under pressure to do homework

Explore your child's future school

Invest in an education for independence, for growth, and for your child’s true self. 

Programs that prepare children for life.


Our daycare or nursery program for infants ages 6 weeks to 18 months old.

At our daycare, all of the child's developmental needs are met with warmth and care by Montessori guides, such as their desire to walk and talk, eat and drink independently, and explore the world around them. The nurturing classroom environment is prepared so that infants feel safe to explore, build strength, and express themselves.

  • Your baby’s developing intelligence is supported by an environment that offers increasingly more complex objects to explore and manipulate in intriguing ways
  • As soon as they're ready, the children use real, child-sized dishes, glasses, and utensils.


Our pre-school (or toddler daycare) program for children ages 18 months to 3 years old.

​​In this program, children make astonishing achievements in terms of communication, independence, physical movement, problem-solving ability, and social interactions.

  • The guides give lessons on social norms like how to greet a new person.
  • The child is exposed to real, rich, precise, and varied vocabulary and grammar.
  • Toilet learning is a crucial milestone, and thanks to our mixed-age classroom, chances are your child has already seen their peers going to the toilet on their own, and is already curious and inspired.

Children's House

Our pre-k and kindergarten program for children ages 3 to 6 years old.

In this program, each area of the curriculum comes with enticing, sequenced materials, which are designed to appeal to the young child's interests and stage of cognitive development. Each child follows their own curiosity, supported by a guide, as they learn math, science, geography, botany, language and culture.

  • The use of materials, such as the pink tower or cylinder blocks, develops the child's scientific mind as they compare, contrast, place in order and evaluate, using their hands and mind together.
  • The children are invited to take part in various practical, real-world tasks and activities, helping them develop key executive function skills as they start to see themselves as capable and competent.
