In a Montessori community, guides (teachers) carefully prepare an environment that fosters independence and captivates a child’s interest. Guides provide personalized support to each child.

  • Cultivate independence and self-confidence by helping children ‘do it all by themselves’ 
  • Form personal connections with each child and cultivate a community of respect
  • Communicate and collaborate respectfully with parents to provide the best possible care for every child 

If you’re passionate about giving children the tools they need to succeed, eager to partner with parents on their child’s journey, and longing to join a collaborative community of peers, then the team at Guidepost Montessori would love to hear from you!
