Center for Montessori Advancement
Welcome to the Center for Montessori Advancement (CMA) at Wilmington Montessori School. CMA is dedicated to making Montessori more accessible to children, educators and families.
The center offers professional development opportunities for educators throughout the year. While our programs are Montessori-based, they are also appropriate for educators who teach in traditional schools and child-care facilities.
