School Reviews

We are so happy we found Guidepost Montessori in Chantilly when we were ready to move our daughter to daycare! The entire school team makes this school feel like a family. We've been so pleased with the level of communication, warmth, and responsiveness from teachers and the administrative team alike. Not to mention the learning our daughter has done has been amazing - she's gained so much independence with basic life skills (finding and preparing her own snack, using utensils and open cups, keeping things in their designated place, etc), fine motor skills, language, and general grace and courtesy. Even more telling is how thoughtfully they've handled supporting the children through the various phases of the COVID 19 pandemic. From providing multiple options (virtual, at-home, essential worker care at school) to meet the different needs of their enrolled families, to such a careful and transparent reopening with enhanced health safety procedures; we didn't even consider leaving Guidepost because there was always an option there for our comfort level at the time. I love how well they know my daughter and my family, and just observing the interactions at drop off / pick up, I know our experience is not unique in this regard. If you're looking for a school that offers a wonderful child-led curriculum, personalized attention, and a real community feel, I can't recommend Guidepost enough!
