January 7, 2021
We can't wait to meet you!
In order to follow social distancing guidelines, we are delighted to offer virtual program overviews and video calls during our normal business hours. The program overviews, conducted by our central team of program experts, give insight into the programs offered on our campus.
Our intimate school community is dedicated to the principles of authentic, high-quality Montessori education. In our Montessori program, we are proud to employ an educational method that speaks to both the heart and mind of a young child.
Act now to secure your child’s place in our school! With rolling admissions, we enroll new students year-round. Since some of our programs are currently waitlisting students, we encourage you to register and begin the process as soon as you're ready. Click below to get started!
Our school is located just off of Queen's Road West, next to The Belchers' residential complex, in the Kennedy Town neighborhood. We welcome your family to our new Montessori community!
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.
All of our classrooms are fully dual-language, 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.”
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.
Kanwal with her daughter Aaira (age 5), Guidepost Children's House student
Aaira’s Guidepost Montessori school is a friendly and uplifting environment.I like the three-hour work cycle in Children’s House, and the flexible ‘extended day’ class schedule. For Aaira, that means lots of Montessori in a single day, every day!
Liss and Joseph with their daughter and son Amal (age 4), Guidepost Children's House student
Our Guidepost school is full of happy kids, and the staff and teachers are friendly and flexible. Amal loves it!
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.
Monet and George with their daughter Carmina (age 3), Guidepost Children's House student
Guidepost Montessori feels like a family. The environment is safe and full of love and care, which makes the learning fun and easy for Carmina.
Zahraa with her daughter Kinda (age 3), Guidepost Children's House student
Guidepost provides an authentic Montessori curriculum and materials. I love that Kinda’s teachers are AMI-trained, which is very important.
Kristen and Mohammed with their son Aydin (age 2), Guidepost Toddler student
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.
Tina and Ben with their daughter Alyssa (age 3), Guidepost Children's House student
Guidepost’s teachers and administration work really hard to create an environment that is warm and inclusive to all children. The Guidepost community is amazing.
Laura with her son Maxwell (age 4), Guidepost Children's House student
Guidepost’s staff see each individual child as an individual and truly strive to bring out Maxwell’s true potential — they promote independence, and we’ve seen Maxwell just thrive since he started at age 3.
We serve children from ages 2 to 6 years old. Our Montessori classrooms foster independence, nurturing each child's practical life skills, emotional and social development, and foundational knowledge. Our classrooms provide a knowledge-rich environment designed for child-led exploration.
