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 parent-child program, moving seamlessly into our warm, homelike, play-based preschool and kindergarten. 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.
Visit us today to experience the difference!
The Parent-Child class is a once-per-week class for children ages 12 months to 3.5 years old (and their grownups!) The Parent-Child experience echoes the rhythms and atmosphere of our Preschool & Kindergarten classrooms, serving as a perfect bridge for young children as they prepare for preschool. More information can be found here.
