Admissions Process


As we look to the 2021-22 school year, our goal is again to offer a continuous on-campus learning experience while taking the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As an accredited school that is also licensed by the Delaware Department of Education's Office of Child Care Licensing, we will continue to follow their updated guidance. Currently, access to the building remains limited, with face coverings required for all adults and children in preschool and older inside the building. Information will be updated throughout the summer. 

Wilmington Montessori School offers rolling admissions throughout the academic year. Applications are accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis for programs with current openings.

Juno Gym Floor

Applications are now open for the 2021-22 school year!

We recommend that families begin the admissions process as early in the fall as possible before the year of planned enrollment. Once classrooms are full, students will be placed on a waiting list and notified if a space becomes available.
