Children in a Montessori class have tremendous freedom—to move, explore and be inspired by the environment, to choose which fascinating materials to work on and how long to persist, and to decide whether to work independently or in a small group for any given activity. 🩵

Guidepost guides work meticulously to make this freedom possible and worthwhile—all to best serve the child’s growth and to unlock their potential. 🎯

The Role Of The Montessori Guide:

✨Prepare a beautiful, orderly environment that supports a child’s independence and captivates their interest
✨Observe each child closely to understand their developmental progress and needs
✨Offer individual or small-group presentations to connect children with materials, build vocabulary, and assess their progress
✨Foster each child’s ability to concentrate, persist, and pursue mastery
✨Inspire children to love learning, apply effort to interesting work, and become the author of their lives.

🚀Give your child an education in an environment where they can flourish. Now enrolling across the network. Visit us online and find a school near you: https://www.guidepostmontessori.com/schools?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=post

Did someone say tea party?! 🫖☕️😃

Here at Guidepost Montessori we are all about helping children learn and grow in a variety of ways. One of the ways we do this is by providing opportunities for children to practice practical life skills. These skills can include things like setting the table, pouring tea, and using manners.

But it’s not just about learning the skills themselves. It’s also about learning how to interact with others in a polite and respectful way. This is why we also encourage children to socialize with their friends in a fun and positive way.

Cheers!

11/13/2023

We invite you to join us for our upcoming open house, where you can experience the vibrant learning environment and diverse community that makes our school so special!

Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Nervous at first to switch from their children's previous school, here's what the Ross family had to say about their experience at Guidepost:

We have been more than impressed with the beautiful changes you have brought to our [children's education].

The staff are [all] warm, loving, attentive, intelligent, engaging and, most of all, committed to our children. We have been overly impressed with your ability to retain staff, in an area where quality employees are few and far between (we own a small business as well, and recognize these significant challenges).

Each day our school is clean, and supplied with new and interesting materials for our children to explore. Pickup is SO EASY. It is quick, personal, and best of all, we find our kids rested, fulfilled and joyful. They sing the songs they have learned from school on the way home, and are proud to tape up their art on the fridge. At dinner, they speak of how they were kind to their friends, and learned to engage socially. They talk about how they are grateful for the environment, and what we can do as a family to better take care of the earth. We hear about how they played outside, got messy, changed themselves and helped clean up.

These are all pillars of their upbringing at home, as well. We have been raising children for 9 years - and we have never found a school that parallels our teachings at home quite like Guidepost. It fits like a glove.

Guidepost, we are so glad we found you!

Unraveling the Tapestry of Time 🕰️

Ever wondered why students are passionate about creating timelines? 🤔

In our middle school, students embark on an extraordinary journey, crafting meticulously detailed hand-drawn timelines of world and US history. 🖋️🌟

Why, you ask? Because history is at the very heart of all we do at ATI. Whether it's math, science, art, or literature, every class calls for students to add dates, figures, and events to their timelines, revealing the intricate tapestry of our interconnected world. 🧩
To understand human beings, we must grasp history - the epic saga of past ideas, lives, injustices, inventions, and adventures. We don't just study history as tales of bygone eras; we see it as a key to understanding the present. To understand the causality of history, we must first comprehend chronology, the relationships between events, ideas, and people on a grand scale.

Timelines are a cornerstone of Montessori history, beginning in early childhood, where they offer an awe-inspiring glimpse into the world's vast story and humanity's epic journey. In middle school, students take this exploration to the next level, crafting their own timelines - each a unique work of art. 🎨🌏

While key events remain constant, no two timelines are identical. Students become captivated by various eras, events, or individuals, resulting in timelines that are profoundly personal. 📖💫

As a culmination of their middle school journey, these timelines are bound into heirloom-quality books, cherished by students for a lifetime. 📚✨

In a Guidepost elementary classroom, grammar isn't studied as stuffy words on a page and dogmatic rules—it’s tactile, enjoyable, and deeply meaningful!

Using Grammar Boxes, for example, every part of speech gets a unique symbol and they are organized to show their relationships very clearly—in a way the child can see and feel.

Through the sensory-rich, engaging study of grammar, the child builds a solid grasp of the parts of speech, how they all relate to one another, and how they can add vibrancy and color to his own writing. 🪶

Grammar studied this way empowers children to become agile, accomplished writers and detail-oriented, careful readers—all in a way they find deeply engaging!

Guidepost Montessori Nido students on the go! These little learners are enjoying a stroller ride to get some fresh air and sunshine. 🌤️💙

Being outdoors is important for Nido students because it helps them to develop their gross motor skills as they move their arms and legs. It also helps them to develop their senses as they experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the natural world. 🌤️💙

And of course, getting fresh air is always good for the body and the mind!

Guidepost Montessori education emphasizes the importance of concrete materials in helping children learn abstract concepts. When learning about geography, Montessori children use a variety of materials, such as globes, maps, puzzles, and models, to explore the world around them. 🌎🗺️

In this photo, the student is creating a map of the world using different materials. This activity is helping them to learn about the different continents and countries of the world. It is also helping them to develop their spatial reasoning skills. 🌎🗺️

Guidepost Montessori education believes that children learn best through hands-on exploration and discovery. By creating their own map of the world, the student is actively engaged in the learning process. This will help them to retain the information better and develop a deeper understanding of geography. 🌎🗺️

Guidepost Montessori classrooms are designed to be child-centered and hands-on, with a focus on learning through exploration and discovery. 🎃🎨

When working on a project like creating a jack-o-lantern, our guides provide children with a variety of materials and tools, and then allow them to choose how to proceed at their own pace. 🎃🎨

Throughout the process, the guide is available to provide assistance and guidance as needed. However, the focus would be on allowing children to explore and learn at their own pace, and to be creative in their designs. 🎃🎨
