"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."
"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."
"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."
A Google Review
"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."
"A question most parents struggle with early on is the question of child care. When my husband and I were faced with this decision as our daughter approached her first birthday and I needed to return to work, the process of finding a preschool felt daunting and overwhelming. We wanted the time our daughter spent away from us to be spent in an environment that was supportive, affirming and challenging. We didn’t want a daycare; we wanted a school. We visited many programs in Albuquerque, and I left each one feeling disappointed and wondering if I should just quit my job and stay home with my daughter. Then we discovered Montessori ONE Preschool Academy. When you observe a classroom at Montessori One, you observe a unique child-centered environment. You see a collaborative partnership between the expertise of the child and the guidance of the teacher, passionate educators who have an understanding of every child’s individual development and who have done so much to foster our girls’ growing independence and potential. Knowing that our children are in this stimulating environment during the day and seeing the incredible social and educational growth resulting from the time spent at Montessori ONE fills me with overwhelming gratitude."
