Da Vinci Waldorf School Tour and Orientation
Join us on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 8:45 to 10:45 a.m. as we gather for an inside look at Waldorf education in action. Experience the warmth of our Early Childhood classrooms. Watch the lively engagement of our grade schoolers as they hear or recall the lessons brought by their teacher or work on math skills by jumping rope. Hear the music the children bring, and page through the textbooks they make by hand. Learn why Waldorf education at any age is the best preparation for your child’s happiness and success in the future.
Space is limited, so please r.s.v.p. by calling (847)526-1372 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org Because we will be observing in classrooms, other than babies in arms, these are adult-only events. We look forward to seeing you there!

Adult Education: Science in the Upper Grades
December 10, 7 pm The uniqueness of the Waldorf system lies not so much in what the children are taught but in how and when.
