Welcome!

Children thrive at Da Vinci Waldorf School. We believe that children deserve an inspired education that allows them to grow up balanced, confident, and able to think for themselves. The journey begins in our warm, homelike, play-based preschool.  Our developmentally-based curriculum in grade school includes music, arts, and outdoor play for all students every day, multi-sensory and experiential learning, and academic excellence without high-stakes testing. When children relate what they learn to their own experience, they are interested and fully engaged, and what they learn becomes their own. Da Vinci Waldorf School is designed to foster this kind of learning.  Da Vinci Waldorf School is proud to bring Waldorf education to Lake County, IL.  Visit us today and experience the difference.

Our mission:   Through the power of imagination, we inspire children to think freely, responsibly, and creatively, to live compassionately, and to embrace learning throughout their lives. Working cooperatively and with integrity, teachers and parents nurture the child’s body, mind, and spirit using the wisdom given by Rudolf Steiner. We strive to prepare children to meet the challenges of our world and the future with clarity of thought, a caring heart and confidence to initiate the positive transformation of society.
