why guidepost?

Located in the heart of downtown Chicago and right on the south end of Magnificent Mile, Guidepost Montessori offers Montessori education for infants through kindergarten-aged children with Spanish Immersion options available.

  • 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.

  • Spanish Immersion Options

    Full language immersion is the best way to offer your child the well-studied “bilingual advantage.” Decades of scientific research shows that bilingual children demonstrate enhanced cognitive flexibility, which comes as a result of regularly flexing their executive-functioning “muscles” in a different way.

  • A Convenient Campus
    A Dependable Partner

    We believe that an important part of our role is to serve as a support system for your family. We try to be here when you need us, with late pick-up hours and minimal school closures. And because the Montessori approach works best when manifested in a community of like minds, we hold regular campus events and get-togethers.
