Emergency Care
For Essential Workers

For these families, we are ready to step in to fill this need, and to provide your children with quality care while you work. We have developed this just for you, and so you can help others in need!

Supporting Our Essential Workers

As the United States mobilizes to contain the spread of COVID-19, to treat those infected, and to ensure the ongoing wellbeing of everyone else temporarily isolated due to the need for social distancing, it is and will increasingly be challenged by an emerging crisis in childcare capacity. In particular, the essential workers needed to successfully address this pandemic themselves need to be able to rely on accessible, reliable, and consistent childcare for their own children—both to physically allow them to focus on the task at hand, and to ensure the peace of mind necessary to complete that task effectively.

Program Offering

Guidepost Montessori is offering Emergency Care for Essential Workers (ECEW) to “essential workers” seeking childcare services in order to remain focused on their own critical work.

If you’re among these people, please let us know if you’re interested in our program. The program will be offered both to qualifying families currently in the Guidepost network, and outside qualifying families who lack other childcare alternatives. Care will be provided in small group cohorts on-site at our existing licensed Guidepost locations. Care will be available for children ages 8 weeks to 12 years old. Additional childcare programming may be developed for families who are not local to one of our existing campuses.

Childcare options include:
  • Flexible drop-off options at one of our existing Guidepost Montessori schools.

  • Montessori programming creating a serene and calm environment for children.

  • Diligently following safety and sanitization requirements and recommendations given by the CDC.
