Guidepost Montessori at Foothill Ranch is our flagship school in our hometown, where Guidepost was born. We welcome your family to our community, which serves children from infancy to age twelve.
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. The result is advanced academics, but the experience feels to your child like a natural, exciting exploration.
A Close-Knit Community
Guidepost families tend to be friendly and welcoming folks, eager to make connections and form strong bonds. We think the education of our students is stronger when we can serve as a hub for such relationships, and we do all we can to foster a strong community in our area, with plenty of fun events and opportunities to meet and mingle.
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 within Foothill Ranch Town Centre, one of Lake Forest's largest shopping areas, and is near Foothill Ranch's newest housing developments.
We serve children from 6 weeks old through elementary. 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.
