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.

The Prepared Environment is of the utmost importance in an authentic Montessori school. Montessori ONE Academy’s customized design and build creates the ideal environment for children to learn and develop. An abundance of natural light, child-sized furniture and materials, organized and clutter-free spaces give children a calm, peaceful, and inspiring environment to learn.

"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."
