A Letter from the Head of School, Lisa Gonzales
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Community of Guidepost Montessori in Round Rock!
We are proud to serve our community as Cognia accredited Montessori school in the state of Texas. To learn more about what that accreditation means click here.
We are not a daycare or a day school. Instead, we offer a traditional Montessori education in a child-centered, nurturing environment. Our single focus is to teach children foundational skills that they will carry on and build upon for the rest of their lives through a personalized curriculum that advances with the child at their unique pace along with the guidance of a committed Guide.
Curious about the Montessori approach to education? I encourage you to discover a bit more by looking here and reading about the history and vision of Guidepost. I also invite you to reach out to us! We offer tours as well as observations, and I’d absolutely love to chat with you about our highly individualized education curriculum for each child that comes through our doors.

Changing the world, one student at a time
We are a school where children find the joy in learning — and thus make it possible for them to continue learning for the rest of their lives.
To think mathematically.
To solve problems.
To create things.
To encounter great literature that inspires their character development.
To build themselves as capable, efficacious beings.
To place themselves in history and in society.
To spark meaningful friendships and deep personal values that last a lifetime.
Our goal at Guidepost Montessori is to serve each individual child, to help them realize their limitless potential, and the opportunities they will have to create real and lasting change throughout their lifetime.
Hear from our Round Rock Families
Our son is one year and in one of the Nido classrooms, and we've had a great experience with Guidepost so far. I appreciate how attentive they are to COVID protocols, as COVID exposure was our biggest hesitancy to putting our child in a classroom setting.
We've only been with the school for a month now, but so far it's been great. I really love the administrators, Shavonda and Tiffany, whose jobs and day-to-day work I have a lot of compassion for. Being responsible for the safety of a massive group of kids (and their parents) during COVID times just sounds so rough. I think they're doing a great job and I do my best to show them my appreciation regularly.
To those considering a daycare for their little one, I love Montessori, and I love the team here, and I think you'll find your child in loving and attentive hands.
"Thank you Guidepost for everything!!"
I highly recommend Guidepost to any parent, especially those who are struggling with their child to transition to certain stages of life. I appreciate all of the love and time and effort that Guidepost puts in to each child. The transparent classroom app they have is amazing, and I look forward to his pictures every day, as well as receiving a personalized email about my son's day from his teacher every afternoon. They also have financial assistance for anyone who qualifies and the process for that is very straightforward too! Another amazing thing that happens at Guidepost is that they always have some type of creative event that can be great for the whole family to participate in so your little one can stay excited about school.
Thank you Guidepost for everything!!
"Thank you, Guidepost"
This is a fantastic school. We are so blessed with the location & having an opening for my 2-year-old grandson. They are going above and beyond to prevent COVID, so no need to be scared. Children need interactions with other children and to learn in a calm, controlled environment, and this school is just that. The amount of quality education he is receiving is extraordinary. Thank you, Guidepost for all you're doing.
