Montessori ONE Academy is the only AMI-recognized (Association Montessori International/USA), authentic Montessori preschool and elementary school in Albuquerque. Children at Montessori ONE Academy are encouraged to explore, investigate and fulfill their natural curiosity about the world around them. Under the guidance of our AMI-recognized Montessori teachers, children develop at their own pace and learn that school and learning can be a fun and exciting adventure... thus creating lifelong learners.
"Montessori ONE is a rare AUTHENTIC Montessori program, and its director, Tina Patel, runs it like a business, where the parents and the kids are the customers! Love that! She has a passion for instilling a love of learning in the kids. Visit and you will see what a special place it is."
"Hands down, the best Preschool in the Q! All 3 of my daughters attend Montessori ONE. One of my daughter's has a developmental delay, which the wonderful staff at Montessori ONE helped us identify. They worked to help compliment the Child Find public school program she was enrolled in, but more importantly, truly worked to understand how to help her excel. Mrs. Sarita truly changed our daughter's life with her nurturing and caring approach. Our twins will graduate kindergarten this year knowing multiplication, division, fractions, cursive handwriting, all their continents, I could go on and on! But it's not all about academics at Montessori ONE - the difference in this school is they teach kindness and respect in a nurturing environment. And the kids have FUN while learning. You really need to take a tour and see for yourself – you’ll be amazed at what you see the kiddo’s doing."
"Montessori ONE is a fantastic place for children to grow… My children have learned everything from life skills, such as cleaning and preparing food to the fundamentals of the sciences and arts. I am confident that when my children graduate, they will be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead."
"First you are captivated by the brand new, bright, state-of-the-art facility itself. Then you are captivated by the director, Tina Patel, and her obvious passion for children, for education, and for using design and environment to enhance the "Prepared Environment" which is a cornerstone of the Montessori approach to education. If you happen to come by for a tour at the right time, you may even catch a glimpse of the preschool yoga class!"
"I could not be happier with the professionalism, nurturing atmosphere and flexibility of both the staff and the director of this school. I also completely disagree with another reviewer who states that children are pushed academically at this school. I have two older children and anyone who knows about child development can tell you that children are naturally curious and can grasp many concepts (such as division) a lot earlier than most traditional schools will have you believe. In conclusion, I feel very comfortable with this school and appreciate the information I was given."
