Montessori ONE’s Toddler program works with children ages 18 months through three years. Guides demonstrate Montessori fundamentals that will prepare Toddlers for a successful Montessori education. Montessori’s Universal Values, Freedom Within Limits, Prepared Environment, Practical Life, and curriculum “Works” are introduced. As with all authentic Montessori programs, students interact in a mixed-age group environment that provides younger students with positive role models and exposure to higher levels of learning, while older Toddlers begin development of early leadership skills. For more information on the Preschool program, please visit our Preschool Curriculum and Environment pages.
The Montessori tenants continue in the Primary Preschool program. The Primary program serves children ages three through six. Montessori’s Universal Values, Freedom Within Limits, Prepared Environment, Practical Life, and curriculum “Works” continue at a more complex level. With the use of specific Montessori materials, language development and mathematic capabilities bloom. It is common to see Primary students spelling, writing in cursive, executing the four main mathematical functions, effectively problem solving, and becoming increasingly curious and enthusiastic about learning.

"I want to take this opportunity to tell all of you how much you have meant to our family. You have helped us shape our little ladies into kindhearted, responsible little individuals who have an understanding of the world and other cultures around them - and we will never forget that gift you've given us! They would not be the people they are today without all of you."
"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."
Montessori One has created a very meaningful, high-quality distance learning program. During this Covid-19 pandemic, for our family, in-person classroom learning is not an option. As my grandson begins his 4th grade studies, I am particularly pleased with his teacher and the great degree of enthusiasm and focus on learning that she brings to class each day. It is very gratifying to watch as all the on-line students gather each morning and prepare to work—they are challenged to their fullest abilities. I know this year will be very successful for my grandson because he is so eager to join the class every day and begin to master the curriculum. Thank you for assuring that he will continue to flourish and grow through your very innovative distance learning program.
"I wanted to send you a note of appreciation for the opportunity to learn about the "how and why" behind what Ms. Jodi is doing in her classroom. She has always been helpful with ideas and advice to help me communicate better with Riley when I've expressed challenges we've faced. We've incorporated a lot of the classroom routine into our home life in an effort to make Riley's world consistent and give her the same opportunities for independence and learning at home as she has at school. Never would I have thought a 2-year-old was capable of this level of responsibility and independence prior to seeing what she has accomplished in your school. Thank you, to you and Jodi. I realize that both of us attend and learn from your school and I look forward to participating in future opportunities you provide parents to learn more about your approach."
As a parent who loves and expects academic excellence for my son, I have found that Montessori One Academy is without a doubt, the best experience any parent and student can ask for. There are many aspects that I personally have found so much gratitude for when it comes to my son attending such a phenomenal school. Thank you Montessori One for not only setting the pace, but raising the bar! Our happy meter is way high!
