Sarah Landt,

Small World Director

Hi. My name is Sarah Landt and I have been been at Small World since 2015. I have the best job and I get so much joy from working with the children and seeing them grow and mature from the time they enter school at age 3 until they are ready to launch into kindergarten as 5 year olds. I have 4 kids at home, ranging from Middle School – College, all of whom were once students at Small World School. When I’m not at Small World, I love to knit, read books, listen to show tunes, see Broadway shows, travel and spend time with family and friends. My kids have all gone through school in a Spanish Immersion Program, so we love getting to travel and using our Spanish as often as we can.
