Davis Waldorf School (DWS) was founded in 1986 by a group of parents who wanted Waldorf education for their children. The first kindergarten opened in the fall of 1986 in the living room of a parent’s house in Dixon, California. The school soon moved to a temporary site in a farmhouse west of Davis. For five years the school grew into a community, housing the expanding grades in portable classrooms, holding assemblies and plays in the property's open-air barn while laying straw pathways through the flooded yard each winter.
