Located in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago, Guidepost Montessori offers Montessori education for toddlers and kindergarten-aged children, with Spanish Immersion options available.
The Montessori Approach
The Montessori method of education offers a knowledge-rich environment, through a child-led model. Children learn joyfully, through working with carefully-sequenced, hands-on materials. Your child’s enthusiastic exploration naturally leads to a solid foundation and advanced academics.
Spanish Immersion Options
Full language immersion is the best way to offer your child the well-studied “bilingual advantage.” Decades of scientific research shows that bilingual children demonstrate enhanced cognitive flexibility, which comes as a result of regularly flexing their executive-functioning “muscles” in a different way.
A Dependable Partner
We believe that an important part of our role is to serve as a support system for your family. We try to be here when you need us, with late pick-up hours and minimal school closures. Our campus is conveniently located in the heart of Chicago, one block from Wicker Park.
We serve children from 2 years through Primary/Kindergarten ages. Our Montessori classrooms foster independence, nurturing each child's practical life skills, emotional and social development, and foundational knowledge. Our classrooms provide a knowledge-rich environment designed for child-led exploration.
