Why Montessori? And what makes Guidepost unique


Maria Montessori, the first female physician in Italy, created the Montessori approach to education over one hundred years ago. As the oldest, most widely recognized and tested form of early childhood education on the planet, Montessori prepares children for the twenty-first century by equipping them with the skills they need to flourish in a constantly changing world.  

From academic readiness – including language, math, sensorial, cultural, and practical life advancement – to developing strong and meaningful social skills, Montessori provides children with a foundation on which to thrive. Most importantly, Montessori recognizes that there cannot be only one way to learn – any more than there cannot be only one way to teach – and works directly with your child’s individual needs and interests.

Why Guidepost?

Guidepost Montessori offers your child an exceptionally personalized learning experience, meeting your child where they are, and taking them to where they want to be. Recognizing that everyone learns differently and at their own pace, Guidepost Montessori provides hands-on learning opportunities for every child.  

Developing lasting relationships with their peers and guides, relationships that extend beyond the walls of the schools, Guidepost Montessori will work with you to help your child develop their independence and confidence, two critical characteristics needed to pursue their interests.

While each Guidepost Montessori has its own authentic culture, the network of schools benefits greatly from the other, constantly learning from one another’s parent communities. The educators continue to evolve, too, working closely with our Prepared Montessorian team, an internal professional development platform that provides the practicing Montessori educator with tools, resources, mentorship, and inspiration needed to thrive both in and out of the classroom.  

Having developed best-in-class practices across the organization and refining the curriculum and experience, Guidepost Montessori works closely with families to develop all capabilities in the students.

Each and every child has a place at Guidepost Montessori.
