School site needed for private North County School
Sometimes it is good to write about something other than San Diego real estate, Rancho Santa Fe news or La Costa condos. Sometimes, it just feels good to see if there is a way to lend a little hand to the community.
This morning, for example, I heard Sanderling Waldorf School in Encinitas and Cardiff is losing its lease and needs a new location somewhere in North County.
This north San Diego County private school currently needs around 4500 square feet, with room for 7 classrooms, a kitchen, offices and storage. It is anticipated that over the next four years, there will be a requirement for 6300 feet and 10 classrooms.
The ideal site would have room for two playgrounds: The preschool would be fenced with around 2400 square feet, while the elementary playground would have at least 4000 to 6000 feet.
Their current school community resides in the Encinitas area. Sanderling Waldorf School would consider sites from Del Mar,Carmel Valley or Encinitas in the South; to Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, or San Marcos in the North; and Elfin Forest, Olivenhain or Rancho Santa Fe in the East.
There is a current budget of $7000 per month. The ideal site would have a natural setting, with zoning and permits in place for a school.
Perhaps a church? Or perhaps a public school that is closing its doors in Oceanside? Hmmm…..
Think I’ll place a few calls–starting with Sanderling Waldorf School, Villa Sotheby’s agent Sandy Mirisch, and Main Street Oceanside.
