"Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment." -Maria Montessori
When asked what makes Wilmington Montessori School special, our families give the same answer again and again: Our teachers and staff.
WMS teachers are enthusiastic and dedicated educators who are committed to meeting the needs of each child in their class. The Montessori teacher is mentally centered and focused on the children. The teachers practice an awareness of their responsibility to model integrity, respect and accountability in all they do. The prepared and committed teachers of WMS recognize that children construct their learning through direct experience with the physical, intellectual and social environment of the classroom and the world and use their keen observation skills to facilitate a match between the unique individual learner and knowledge.
