Admissions Process

IMPORTANT ADMISSIONS INFORMATION:

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.

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.
