Five elements distinguish the Washington Montessori learning experience for children at all levels: personalized education, a collaborative community, character development, dedicated teachers and challenging academics.
The PARENT-CHILD PROGRAM is an opportunity for parents/caregivers and their young children aged 6 to 18 months to be together in a Montessori environment.
The YOUNG CHILDREN’S COMMUNITY encourages children aged 18 months to three years to develop trust and independence while introducing them to age-appropriate Montessori materials.
In the LOWER SCHOOL, 3- to-6-year-old children develop concentration, a sense of order, and independence through a variety of classroom exercises.
LOWER ELEMENTARY classrooms are organized into three broad curriculum areas (language, math, and culture) and the 6- to 9-year-old students study cooperatively under the guidance of their teachers.
The UPPER ELEMENTARY program for children aged 9 to 11 promotes independent thinking and accountability and supports diverse learning styles by presenting information in various ways.
The MIDDLE SCHOOL program is rich and rigorous, preparing 11- to 14-year-old students for high school through academic challenge, community involvement, and social interaction.
WMS also offers additional LEARNING SUPPORT SERVICES, such as tutoring, sensory integration/occupational therapy and speech therapy.
WMS offers EXTENDED DAY options for our YCC through UE students.
