North America’s oldest Waldorf teacher education institute, Sunbridge presents world-renowned Waldorf teacher education programs, as well as professional development and general interest courses and workshops on Waldorf education and teaching, organizational leadership, and the arts. The teachings of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education, are at the heart of the Sunbridge mission, and we are dedicated to the support of Waldorf education in North America.
