Extended Day

Wilmington Montessori School offers before- and after-school care, "School's Out" child care and after-school special programs including drama, dance, art, sports, science, yoga and more.

Child care and specials are available to WMS students and Brandywine School District* students.

*We welcome all Brandywine School District students into our before-school, after-school and "School's Out" child-care programs. On school days, the Brandywine School District provides transportation to Wilmington Montessori School for students attending Claymont, Mt. Pleasant and Forwood elementary schools.

Before- and After-School Child-Care

WMS offers care for students of all ages for the hours before and after school. Before-school child care opens at 7 a.m. and after-care is open from 3 to 6 p.m. For toddlers and preschoolers, these programs are based in the regular Montessori classrooms, led by experienced staff members who are also part of the children’s school-day staff team.

For elementary and middle school students, programs are led by year-round WMS staff members. Each group is based in a room dedicated to and designed for the needs of older children beyond the classroom day. We provide snacks, organized games and projects, a place to relax, and time and space to run and play. Supervised homework time and assistance is offered Monday through Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

To register your child, contact Tracey Gable, Director of Montessori Enrichment.
