We believe there is no better way to understand the Montessori difference than to experience it yourself—even if you’re just curious. To this end, we invite you to join us for one of our Walk-In Wednesdays or to schedule a visit of our campus. Our students will give you a tour of the building and our teachers will invite you in to the classrooms for observation. For a preview, visit our "At a Glance" page.

Mornings work best for observing the children at work, but we’re flexible and happy to work around your schedule. Please contact Laura Martin, Assistant Head for School Advancement at lmartin@washingtonmontessori.org or 860-868-0551 to set up a visit.


Washington Montessori School is an engaging and substantive academic environment supported by a deeply-rooted and diverse community of families and educators. Our students learn to recognize their individual and collective potential, develop thoughtful approaches to learning, and choose paths to responsible and fulfilling lives.

annual giving


Since our founding 51 years ago, WMS continues to gain momentum thanks to the consistent support of our loyal community. Each year, the WMS Annual Fund finances important programs and services unique to the WMS experience. Simply put, it is a critical part of the operating budget of our school. Tuition covers approximately 80% of the school’s annual budget; we, like all non-profit organizations, must rely on additional fundraising to bridge the gap. Read more.
