At Suncoast Waldorf

At Suncoast Waldorf School we understand that the fulfillment of your child’s educational needs does not come from a textbook, but from the heart of the teacher whose love and knowledge of your child and of the lessons she is teaching inspire and instill a lifelong love of learning in her students.

In Waldorf education children are immersed in an environment rich in imagination, hands-on learning, and individualized attention. Suncoast Waldorf School is about breadth and depth and balance, cooperation in place of competition, a zest for the learning process and experience rather than the endless cramming for tests that bear no relevance to or meaning for a child’s life, and which are therefore forgotten as soon as they are finished, and the meeting of individual needs over standardization.

School can and should be a wondrous journey, and at Suncoast Waldorf School it is. Our children deserve nothing less.

“Receive the children with reverence. Educate them with love. Send them forth in freedom.” -Rudolf Steiner
