Thanks to all the amazing helping hands that made this Valentine’s Day special… Happy Valentine’s Day to all our families and friends! 🥰❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Nothing better than a good story and fall weather. HAPPY FRIDAY!
It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of a great friend of Guidepost Montessori, MaryAnn Boyd. MaryAnn was a pioneering Montessori entrepreneur, and a shining example of a fully lived Montessori life. She founded the Boyd Schools, a celebrated network of six beautiful Northern Virginia Montessori schools.

The Boyd Schools, which MaryAnn owned and operated with her husband Tim Beckworth, live on today as six Northern Virginia Guidepost Montessori campuses: Guidepost Montessori at Aldie, Guidepost Montessori at Broadlands, Guidepost Montessori Chantilly, Guidepost Montessori at Fairfax, Guidepost Montessori at Herndon, and Guidepost Montessori at Reston. These schools represent a unity of MaryAnn’s deep devotion to children with her enduring entrepreneurial spirit.

Mike Brown, Head of School Guidepost Montessori at Reston remembers fondly his time with MaryAnn Boyd: “MaryAnn personified Montessori education with grace, kindness, and innovation. Her passion and work as a teacher, mentor, and founder has had an enduring impact on a generation in Northern Virginia. From the children she gently guided, to the teachers she mentored, to the families she welcomed into the Boyd School community, the impact of her life is hard to fathom. She truly made the world a better place.”

In 2016, MaryAnn entrusted her life’s work to a new generation of Montessorians. While she stepped away from daily operations, she has remained a part of the community, and has continued to make important contributions to the work of bringing Montessori to the children of the world.

In honor of MaryAnn Boyd’s legacy, Guidepost Montessori will create a new MaryAnn Boyd scholarship fund. This needs-based scholarship will provide five years of 100% tuition assistance for six children, one at each of the six Guidepost School MaryAnn founded. We will post more information soon on this page, and at guidepostmontessori.com.

As MaryAnn has been a lifelong supporter and advocate of the American Montessori Society (AMS), Guidepost Montessori will also make a donation to AMS in her name.

The world has lost a great Montessorian, but her spirit will live on in the work she inspired, and the lives she has touched.
My daughter and I are ready to cook, do an art craft and celebrate the Lunar New Year🧧 with the Guidepost Montessori at Reston family 🥳 🎆

We have been blessed to have been a part of the Guidepost Reston community for over 1 year now and have come to be really impressed with the impact that the staff has had on our son’s life. They are truly gifted at working with children and my son has thrived immensely in this amazing community.

Since the current pandemic has started, I was nervous at first with how I would provide a safe environment for my son while I serve as a mandatory call provider for the US Navy. I have been truly impressed with how Guidepost Reston has adapted from the beginning to both caring for the children and the staff. I can say without reservation that they are going above and beyond current CDC and Va Dept of Health recommendations in their day to day practices at the school. In short, they are taking the same precautions I do in my own practice.

Without a doubt, I am comfortable with my son attending Guidepost Reston on a daily basis and would give them my strongest possible recommendation to any friends or family looking for a truly exceptional community for their children in these challenging times.

Montessori classrooms are simplified and uncluttered. They are home to many activities and practices that invite children to participate in actively maintaining this state.

Each activity is matched to the appropriate moment in an individual child's development and designed to strengthen the integration between mind and hand.

The essential skills developed through the practical life activities will form the basis for all further learning as your child grows.

Montessori education is founded on a belief in individualization, and practice. Everything is done at the child’s pace with the understanding that every child hits milestones in their own time.

Photos from Guidepost Montessori at Reston's post 12/09/2021

Montessori education will make sure that each child develops the skills they will need to gain a sense of order and independence.

Photos from Guidepost Montessori at Reston's post 12/08/2021

There is the goal to involve as many senses as possible with learning. To the child, the hands-on learning in a Montessori education might seem more like playing and or having fun, but it is purposeful.

We’re Open and Now Enrolling for the Fall

Guidepost Montessori at Reston is proudly reopening. We're delighted to once again be offering our Montessori programs to all families with the utmost attention to all health and safety standards set by both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and local health departments—and we're going beyond them.

Administrative staff complete wellness checks and daily health screenings and follow regulations regarding infection control practices including:


  • Routine disinfection of all classroom materials, surfaces, and playground equipment

  • We will also ensure that our class sizes are small for proper distancing
