Our Campus

Our community in Emeryville is located centrally with easy access to the 80, 580 and 880 freeways.  At the heart of our school is our belief that children thrive when given freedom and responsibility in Montessori environments prepared especially for them. Our school offers bright, beautifully-designed classrooms in an urban setting. Our two-story main school building is a completely remodeled warehouse, while our infant cottage offers a separate space for our youngest students. Children enjoy several enticing play areas: a large yard securely surrounded by our building and walls, a rooftop playground, and an indoor gross motor space with a built-in climbing wall.

Our beautiful campus and welcoming community is the perfect place for your child to explore her own potential.

Guidepost Montessori classrooms are light, airy, calming, aesthetically beautiful spaces. Each material is carefully chosen and carefully displayed — to inspire and entice your child to explore.
