Learn About Guidepost
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.
Get in touch
Our beautiful new campus will be opening for enrollment soon, but we'd love to get the conversation started with you now! We'll keep you in the loop about our progress, and ensure a spot in one of our programs for your child.
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.
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 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.
We serve children from 12 months old through Primary/Kindergarten ages. Our Montessori classrooms foster independence by 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.
