Turtles (ages 12-38 months) - WMS only

For students enrolled in the Wilmington Montessori School Toddler Program only


Note: All weeks of Turtles camp except Week 9 are filled to capacity as of 6/29/22. A waiting list is available - email camp@wmsde.org for information.

The Turtles program closely mirrors our school-year Toddler Program in terms of the rhythm of the day: circle time, exploration of Montessori materials, cooking, culture, art, science projects, nature study and active play.

Note: The Turtles camp program is only available for families enrolled in Wilmington Montessori's school-year program. Please contact camp@wmsde.org to register your child or sign up for a waiting list in the case of full sessions. 


Integrated Curriculum
Bi-weekly themes allow children to explore topics through many lenses. Toddlers explore STEAM in their specially designed Maker Studio throughout the summer.

Highly Trained & Experienced Staff
To provide consistency for our youngest campers, the Turtles are led by year-round WMS teachers. They will be assisted by many other school-year staffers and several college students. 

Facilities & Campus
Our toddler classrooms are beautiful spaces, designed by our lead teachers to facilitate toddlers' development of independence, competence and confidence. The natural toddler playground, gross-motor playroom, toddler Maker (STEAM) Studio and acres of natural woodlands provide the perfect environment for a program supporting toddlers' physical, social and intellectual development. Children engage in a variety of outdoor activities including weekly waterplay on the toddler playground!
