Wilmington Montessori School students and staff are back on campus for the 2020-21 school year.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WMS continues to offer opportunities for prospective families to learn about our school and complete the admissions process without visiting campus.

Live virtual open houses and tours are now available. Please submit our open house registration form, fill out our information request form or email our Admissions Office to make an appointment. Our admissions team would love to chat with your family and help you discover the WMS difference!

TODDLER WAITING LIST:  Our Toddler Program is currently full. Please contact admissions@wmsde.org for information about our waiting list.

In the special environment prepared for them in our schools, the children themselves found a sentence that expressed their inner need: "Help me to do it by myself."

Dear Prospective Parents,

We are delighted that you are considering Wilmington Montessori School for your child’s education. Selecting your child’s educational path is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent, whether your child is 12 months or 14 years old. We are confident that WMS provides children with a nurturing environment that fosters lifelong learning, independent thinking and awareness about the global community. It is our goal to make the decision-making process easier for you by giving you a closer look at what makes WMS and our students unique.

We invite you to take the first step in our admissions process by taking a virtual tour of our beautiful 25-acre campus. You can also join us for a virtual open house. We want to make the admissions process an educational and enjoyable experience as you consider joining our school community and making WMS the place for your child to grow. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about our school!

Warmest regards,

The WMS Admissions Team
