Why Montessori One?

Montessori ONE Academy has set the standard for what preschool education can be and for what can be accomplished when a parent invests in early education. This school provides children a solid foundation on which to stand for the rest of their academic careers. Most importantly, it is staffed with teachers that take ownership over children’s education and pride themselves on the success they achieve in the classroom. This type of attention is critical at this stage of development to create children that are confident and passionate about learning. My oldest son attended Montessori One when it first opened.

He is now flourishing in the 3rd grade. We moved out of state when he was 4 and failed to find a school that compared to Montessori One for our youngest son. We were fortunate enough to move back to New Mexico, now our youngest son has the opportunity to attend the amazing school. Blessed to have found it!

Key Concepts:

  • Learning occurs in a cooperative and nurturing environment. Students will increase their own knowledge through self and teacher initiated experiences.
  • Respect and caring attitudes for others, the environments, and all life, including oneself, are necessary and important.
  • Learning utilizes all senses. Students will learn through manipulation of curriculum materials and through interaction with others.
  • The individual is considered as a whole. The physical, social, emotional, spiritual, cognitive, and aesthetic needs and interests of the child are all equally important and must be inseparable.

Basic characteristics:

  • Teachers educated in the Montessori philosophy and methodology who have the ability, dedication, and passion to put the key concepts into practice.
  • A multi-aged, multi-level group of students learning together.
  • A diverse set of Montessori materials, activities, and experiences which are designed to foster physical, intellectual, creative, and social independence.
  • A schedule that provides blocks of uninterrupted time to problem solve, to create new ideas, and to see the interdisciplinary connection of knowledge.
  • Provide a classroom environment that encourages social interaction for cooperative learning, peer teaching, and emotional development.
  • Allow children to learn at their own pace by providing individual and small group lessons.
