History of Waldorf Sarasota - Our Roots

Waldorf Sarasota - our roots

Waldorf Sarasota was founded in 2000 by a small group of dedicated parents and experienced Waldorf teachers. What began as a playgroup swiftly expanded into much-needed nursery and kindergarten programs. Our grade school soon followed, as did more families and more exceptional teachers.

Today, Waldorf Sarasota is part of a worldwide association of independent Waldorf schools: AWSNA. We offer early childhood programs and a comprehensive grades curriculum, currently to 5th grade. Our vision encompasses developing our school through 8th grade as our community grows.

Waldorf Sarasota offers parent-child classes, Tea ‘n Puppets© Story Time, Head, Heart and Hands-On adult education classes, and community festivals. We have attracted a world-class faculty and a community of extraordinary families. Many of the children who joined our first playgroup are now thriving alumni, and their siblings are enjoying Waldorf Sarasota.


Our story is unfolding daily. Every new family and each new teacher makes our history richer and our roots stronger. We are looking forward to serving the greater Sarasota Community for many years to come.

Welcome to Waldorf Sarasota.
