Sanderling Waldorf School

  • Our mission at Sanderling Waldorf School 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.
