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
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.
My son is in the 3rd grade at Da Vinci Waldorf and is new to the school this year. He has transitioned wonderfully. He enjoys school and looks forward to going each day. At the end of the day he gets in the car and seems as “fresh” as he did when I dropped him off in the morning. He is not tired or overwrought and seems genuinely happy. I am very glad we chose Da Vinci Waldorf for him, and we are planning on sending our two daughters next year. Thanks, Da Vinci Waldorf , for doing what you do!

We have 2 children in the grades and 1 in preschool and are so pleased with the education and environment. The children are happy, content and want to go to school each day! The teachers are wonderful in who they are and as educators. I love recommending this school; it is the type of education I wish I could have had myself!

Da Vinci Waldorf School is a wonderful little school in Wauconda, IL. It was a difficult decision to move our 3 children out of public school, but we have never regretted it. The children are much more relaxed and creative. They actually like to learn.
