"Waldorf School of Santa Barbara has truly been a gift. I am constantly amazed and watching the growth and expansion of our oldest child. She is able to play independently for hours. Her ability to engage with the world around her, and create is truly inspiring. So thankful for the dedicated teachers who guide the children gently with love and laughter!"
