You can get the worms to move from one area to another, but it will take awhile. This article has some information you might be able to use: http://whatcom.wsu.edu/ag/compost/easywormbin.htm
My thought is that you could also use a seed starting medium that doesn't incorporate your compost, then transplant you seedling to the composted soil later. Here's an article about making a good medium for starting seeds: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/seeds/soilless-seed-mix-info.htm
