Parent Seminars & Classes

Why in the world do they knit at school? How is my child's teacher providing for him or her as an individual? Why do they teach the way they do? Endless questions are bound to come up for any parent providing an education for their child that may be different from their own. Appreciation for what goes on in a Sanderling Waldorf School child's day, and how to nourish this at home, is just part of what our parent education program offers. Our school is proud to provide parents with a program that facilitates an understanding of the Waldorf philosophy and what it means to educate in our modern world. From group meetings multiple times a year with parents and their children's teachers, to guest speakers who provide a unique window into Waldorf, to ongoing parent study groups -- our school strives to make adult education a key element in child-rearing.

For Enrolled School Families

We offer periodic seminars and study groups for parents of enrolled students. All school parents are welcome to attend these free discussion sessions. Dates and times will be sent to enrolled families via email and posted in the office and on the online school calendar.

The temperaments

with Patricia Rubano


The elements that live not only around us, but within us.

Have you ever wondered why people are so different? There are many reasons, of course, but one has to do with the way we each uniquely embody these four elements. The temperaments are one lens through which we can come to a better understanding of ourselves and the others in our lives.



8:45 am to 10:15 am


Patricia Rubano has been working with Waldorf Education and Anthroposophy for over 40 years. She is currently director of the Biography and Social Art Program, offers parent education and serves as an early childhood mentor and evaluator for Waldorf Schools.
