Sanderling Waldorf School's mission is to foster in each child the capacity for self-knowledge that is grounded in a lifelong love of learning.
Recognizing each individual as a unique expression of body, soul and spirit, we seek to engage the whole child through a developmentally appropriate curriculum that address the physical, emotional, and intellectual aspects of a child.
In the classroom, at special events and through seasonal festivals, our parents, teachers and staff work together to engage the minds, enliven the imaginations and strengthen the wills of our students.
By creating a close-knit community, we provide a nurturing and compassionate environment that fosters both an abiding moral purpose and an understanding that we are part of a global society with many spiritual traditions.
Ultimately, this balance of individualism and community building affords our students the opportunity to meet life's challenges with creativity and responsibility.
