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.
"We have had our daughter there about a year. We have been very happy with her teachers and Tina. It's everything we hoped for in a school and we look forward to our son starting this summer. Thank you to all at Montessori ONE!"
"My wife and I enrolled our three year old son in the program at Montessori ONE halfway through the academic year, depressed and discouraged by his experience in another school where he had suffered for want of stimulation, for want of the nurturing structure of a genuine Montessori program. In less than a week at Montessori ONE we had our old boy back -- and more, much more! He was talking and singing and teaching us yoga. He was excited about school again, eager each day to reunite with his teachers and classmates. Since then, we have been deeply impressed by the professionalism of both Montessori ONE Director, Tina Patel, and her teachers, by the depth of their training, and by their obvious love of children. One has only to see the building itself to appreciate the scope of Tina's vision for the school. The instant one crosses the threshold there one feels at peace, at home."
"Adam and I are so pleased with how well Luke has done this year. The work you have done with him to build his trust and self-confidence, his ability to make friends and interact with his peers is extraordinary. We commend your tireless effort! Our family feels so lucky to have you [Mr. Farren] as Luke's teacher. We think that you have demonstrated a deep knowledge of the Montessori Method and you have really helped us to see its benefits. I have never seen Luke hug any of his teachers before! The other day when you sat down next to him at his cubby and he leaned over and hugged you was monumental to me. Thank you for teaching our son and giving him the freedom of choice and independence!"
"My son transitioned to Montessori ONE from an in-home day care environment at 18 months, and despite severe separation, his transition was relatively smooth. At nearly 3 years old now, he is thriving and I continue to feel that the staff are open in communicating his daily routine and helping us with extending aspects of Montessori theory into our home. IF YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR JUST A DAY CARE or someone that is going to care for your child more than 40 hours/week, this is probably not the place for your child...this is truly an educational facility that offers child care beyond school hours."
