Our Kindergarten Community

Virtual schooling for ages 5-6

A hands-on Montessori learning experience that provides the foundations for the elementary years.

Guidepost Montessori’s online kindergarten program provides a virtual kindergarten year, with a Montessori guide, lessons, and materials.

The Montessori approach will connect your child with math and literacy in a way that affords enduring independent understanding. And your child will connect socially with a virtual classroom community.

It’s a kindergarten experience that brings Montessori to you, your home, and your child, equipping them with academic foundations and social development skills. We operate the program in conjunction with Guidepost Family Framework, our approach to bridging school to home by equipping families with resources and support.

A day in the kindergarten virtual community includes:

Class Meeting Time. The Virtual Classroom runs Monday through Friday for 90 minutes. During this time, your child’s educator will be offering lessons in the Montessori curriculum, focusing primarily on math and reading and writing skills, as well as doing some Practical Life and movement activities.

Electives. In addition to the morning class time, your child will also be invited to afternoon “electives” where they will be able to join classes such as yoga, art, Mandarin or Spanish, etc. There will also be additional math and language lessons once or twice a week.

Offline Parenting Support

Distance learning at this age is complemented when your child is able to complete follow up activities at home while offline. Although we will not physically be in your home to enable these activities, we will do everything we can to help support you in creating the conditions for your child to be successful outside of class, including:

An initial home setup consult. We will help you set up your home environment, and send you a set of basic materials (this will be included in the fee, and at no additional cost to you).

Parent Concierge access. You will have a designated expert at your fingertips! You can meet with your Parent Concierge as often as you like to help you set up routines, offer suggestions or troubleshoot any issues you may be having at home.

A regular check in meeting with your child’s Virtual Guide. In these meetings, you can discuss what your child is working on in class, and how you can support at home. Your Guide will also walk you through how to work with any materials in alignment with the Montessori program.

Community Access

If you’re near a Guidepost campus, you have access to participate in in-person events and join a larger community.

For parents, enrollment offers access to a global community of other families seeking to apply Montessori principles. You’ll even be able to take our parent training for free—or enroll in our full Montessori teacher training certificate course.

And should you choose, when you’re ready, you’ll be able to easily enroll your child in a local Guidepost school.
