Why Guidepost?

Guidepost Montessori at Dongming Road is one of the first private childcare institutions approved by Shanghai Pudong New Area Education Bureau, and one of the few Montessori kindergartens in Shangdong community. We are currently running 3 classes providing teaching and care services for children aged 18 to 36 months. We welcome your family to our community!

  • Authentic Montessori
    The Montessori Approach

    The Montessori method of education offers a knowledge-rich environment, through a child-led model. Children learn joyfully, through working with carefully sequenced, hands-on materials. Your child’s enthusiastic exploration naturally leads to a solid foundation and advanced academics.

  • English-Mandarin Bilingual Environments

    All of our classrooms are fully bilingual, led by English and Mandarin-speaking teachers. Immersing your child in a new language is the best way to offer them the well-studied “bilingual advantage.” Research shows that bilingual children demonstrate enhanced cognitive flexibility, a result of regularly stretching their language “muscles.”

  • A Family Experience
    A Close-Knit Community

    Guidepost families tend to be friendly and welcoming folks, eager to make connections and form strong bonds. We think the education of our students is stronger when we can serve as a hub for such relationships, and we do all we can to foster a strong community in our area, with plenty of fun events and opportunities to meet and mingle.

    Ryan with his son Kainoa (age 2), Guidepost Toddler student

    My kids have developed into capable and compassionate people. The school feels like a community, a family…their guides know their individual tastes and attitudes and cater to that. I love that the program emphasizes practical life (things like learning to get dressed by yourself), as well as the ‘grace and courtesy’ lessons when it comes to sharing. It's a global vision, which I love.

  • Elizabeth with her daughter, Jane (age 2), Guidepost Toddler student

    I love the staff. They treat everyone as family, and they love my daughter as if she was their own. She truly loves all the guides here. Guidepost is so family-friendly…everyone is so warm and welcoming, and I love knowing my daughter is in such a nurturing environment. I love how hands-on my daughter’s learning is. She is learning wonderful life skills as such a young age!

    Everyone at Guidepost is there to help and foster the growth of our son. It’s an amazing family to be a part of…we can talk to them about anything and feel that our opinion is valued. They truly care about the growth and education of our son. Aydin’s development has been absolutely amazing…the balance between discovering life skills and just being a toddler boy is perfect. Aydin has learned skills that far exceed his peers outside of Guidepost. He is mommy and daddy’s best little helper!
