Waldorf Schools Feed the Mind, Heart and Soul of a Gifted Child
Parents of gifted kids who are concerned with their children's lack of challenge in the elementary school years should consider a Waldorf school. Without the need for pull-outs or acceleration, gifted kids will be fully engaged in a regular Waldorf classroom.

The content of the lessons draws on the essential knowledge that underlies all the branches of learning. The material is presented by the teacher with story, song, demonstrations and active participation. The children process what they've learned and retell and illustrate it in books they create at the level of complexity that they can handle.

Writing and drawing becomes as fluid and expressive as oral speech. Children are given regular opportunities to develop oral presentations, individually and as a group, growing over time in self-confidence and poise.

All children sing daily, play the recorder daily, study a stringed instrument, learn two languages, learn handwork and movement in a joyful and relaxed environment. Two periods of outdoor recess enable children to move freely and take a mental and emotional break. For gifted kids who may excel academically but not in activities that require fine motor skills, visual-spatial perception and coordination, the Waldorf curriculum provides daily developmental challenges that help children overcome weaknesses as well as hone their strengths.

Ideally, a child will have one teacher from 1st through 8th grade in a Waldorf school. A parent with an open mind willing to work with a Waldorf teacher will receive -- and will enable their child to receive -- a committed, impassioned and devoted partner in promoting their child's development.

The rich content, the variety of activities each day, the encouragement of imagination, questioning and self-expression ensure that the gifted child will be challenged and engaged in a Waldorf classroom. Curiosity and love of learning will remain unquenched as the heart and soul of a gifted child is fed.

great and unique education
Water?s Edge is more than a school for my two children. It is a place where we have found a community of friends and teachers with whom we share a passion for academic excellence in an environment that preserves the children?s innocence, accentuates their creativity and imagination, and inspires a profound reverence for human kind and nature. We embarked on this journey three years ago after informing ourselves about Waldorf education. We are confident that this unique and holistic educational approach is what our children need. I often think and have heard from other parents at Water?s Edge how lucky our children are for being immersed in such a magical and unique program. Many have said that they wish they had had the opportunity to attend a Waldorf school. Everyday I witness how creative and imaginative my daughters have become. They often play and invent or retell stories and songs using simple objects (silks, rocks, wood, water, leaves and soil) both indoors as well as outdoors. We as parents are committed to help and guide our children to develop their full potential in life and face the world with an open mind and heart. This school and its community are without a doubt are best allies to achieve this priceless goal.

There is a better way!
Water?s Edge 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. I feel our children are challenged on many levels although stress levels in our house have greatly decreased. The school organized such that the children are exposed to many things such as art, music and foreign language during the day. These were many of the things I wanted for our children that we just didn?t have time for without sacrificing playtime and family time because of homework and other stresses inherent in the public school system. If you are beginning to wonder what your child is doing during the 6? hours they are in school and why you still have so much homework and stressed out kids, take a look at Water?s Edge. We took the plunge and have never looked back.
