Distance Learning (ages 6-12)
A Guidepost at Home option for Elementary students
Parents who have their children at home still crave a model with structure, led by an educator alongside a community of welcoming peers. Our virtual model alleviates the burden of managing and generating schoolwork for parents, and connects children directly to Guidepost Montessori’s world-class educators.
As the reality sets in for school closures, families are seeking solutions. While many schools are assigning work packets, and there is a plethora of lesson ideas and learning apps online, often parents are overwhelmed by meeting their children’s educational needs while also managing their own daily responsibilities. “What if my child doesn’t understand the work sent home or needs more support than I can offer? Is my child engaged in learning or keeping busy? What is even reasonable to accomplish at home? How do I address time gaps when my child is done working? What about my child’s social needs?” Families are searching for offerings that provide the high-quality, individualized education that elementary children need to flourish academically, socially and emotionally.
Children can join a welcoming, collaborative peer community in their time zone on weekdays from 9 am to 3 pm (or similar). Small group lessons are balanced with engaging independent work. In our virtual classrooms, elementary students will receive lessons that are customized to meet their level of needed challenge, as well as an ongoing assessment of their progress.
