Guidepost Montessori, operated by Higher Ground Education, is the world’s largest Montessori network, serving over 7,000 families on over 80 campuses across the U.S. and Asia. Their holistic approach “educates the whole child,” providing a knowledge-rich environment that enables social, emotional, and physical development.
Higher Ground Education contracted Helios Construction Services to build out their new Guidepost Montessori Naperville downtown location, making this our sixth Guidepost buildout. The existing building was a bank that had occupied the space since the 1960s. The project involved extensive exterior and interior improvements to provide light, airy, and calming environments characteristic of Guidepost schools. The 19,500 SF facility offers a completely remodeled interior and outdoor playground conveniently located in Naperville’s downtown core, steps away from the train station.
Helios has completed six Guidepost Montessori locations to date. We have teamed with Higher Ground Education on four other national locations in Alexandria, VA; Naperville (Southwest), IL; West Loop, Chicago; and Wicker Park, Chicago.
