The Montessori Way
“The child who concentrates is immensely happy.”
– Maria Montessori.
Welcome to One Love Montessori in San Mateo! We are pleased that you are interested in enrolling your child at our school! We are dedicated to providing your children with the highest standard in Montessori education.
The school is owned and administered by Rita M Enright, who has been in education and administration for over 20 years, and previously managed All Are Friends Montessori school in Foster City.
Our programs are aimed at developing the emotional, intellectual and social independence of your child in a multi-cultural setting. Each child is encouraged to develop at their own rate, benefiting from a high level of individual teacher attention and motivation.
One Love Montessori is a year-round pre-school in San Mateo, where our program is designed to serve children from two and a half years (potty trained) to six years of age.
Although established in San Mateo since 2021, our director, Miss Rita has been teaching and Director at All Are Friends in Foster City since 1999
Our role as teachers is to help children learn to live in harmony with all people and the environment. Our cultural area includes Geography, Zoology, Botany and Science.
Language is a favorite area in the Montessori classroom. Activities are designed to prepare the child for continued language development.
Sensorial activities help the child develop the ability to classify and sort colors, textures and smells, and to transfer that knowledge to the outside environment.
The activities in the practical life area teach the child to function and process activities in their own environment, such as the use of utensils and dish washing
As the children show an interest, they are exposed to numbers and counting. They are then encouraged to develop mathematical concepts through daily living activities.
Children Are Our Focus!
A Nurturing, Safe and Stimulating Environment for Them to Thrive!
A young child learns best in a homelike setting, filled with developmentally appropriate materials that provide experiences contributing to the growth of confidence, self-motivation and independent learning.
