Why Choose Da Vinci Waldorf?

  • Your child will love school

    smiling A curriculum created for your child's age and stage of development means the content will naturally engage his interest. This combined with the unique Waldorf teaching approach that integrates the arts, movement, and hands-on activities with classical academics, small classes with exceptional teachers, and plenty of time outdoors will encourage your child's love of school.
  • Your child will be loved and known

    woodworking Our teachers stay with their students from year to year through the grades, allowing relationships to build over time and letting teachers know each child as an individual. Beginning in 1919, Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education, designed it this way to facilitate the ideal that the teachers would love each of their students. Every teacher in our small school also knows and cares about every student here.
