Since our school was founded in 1964, Wilmington Montessori School has developed into one of the premier Montessori schools in the country. We have done this by building an environment dedicated to the education and development of children. That is our specialty; it is our mission.
Wilmington Montessori School values childhood as a time of innocence and discovery. Our curriculum, facilities and faculty are dedicated to providing children with a challenging curriculum in a safe and nurturing environment without the complicated demands of the middle and high school program. Maria Montessori said that "one becomes a well-balanced adult only if one has fully been a child."
When you give your child the gift of experiencing Wilmington Montessori School, you give your child the opportunity to grow in an environment that nurtures the spirit of the child, bringing us all one child closer to the world community that Maria Montessori envisioned. Your child experiences a school community where children are respected for their own unique gifts and grows in a community where the social curriculum and academic curriculum are equally important. Perhaps the greatest testimony to this work are the comments we receive from the schools our graduates attend after completing sixth grade at WMS. They are described as confident, well-prepared, enthusiastic, independent thinkers who are active contributors at their future school communities.
