Pros

Love the Parent Portal feature and ease of registration. We love being able to communicate with parents and send pictures to them throughout the day.

RK

Rhonda K.

Sandbox Software is easy to use and the customer service is outstanding. Records and data are compiled in an easy format to learn and use.

ES

Edie S.

Parents love the ability of paying online and seeing real-time posts from teachers about their child. Sandbox Customer Service is Top Notch.

CS

Courtney S.

Pros

The app is so easy to use and such a great tool to share information with parents. Beautiful learning journeys for our children including videos that they will look back on.

RH

Rachel H.

Overall we have had a great experience the past year, we hope for a long and positive relationship.

GC

Georgia C.

Great software, it was really easy to set up and the customer support were knowledgeable, friendly and easy to contact.

HM

Hayley M.

Cons

There are some confusing settings with the billing feature.

SP

Sara P.

I have parents get confused when they login with their personal email when the account is setup under the other parent and see a zero balance.

BL

Bridget L.

Financial records are confusing and I sometimes have a hard time getting the forms I want.

CM

Clare M.

Cons

Only thing is that the push notification for an accident does not tell you what child it is about.

KE

Kirsty E.

Sometimes staff in the sleep room change and it can be hard calculating 7 different wake up times from the time each child has been marked to have fallen asleep.

RS

Rachel S.

If a child hasn't started but register and you make a mistake on the room moves this can be hard to amend without seeking help. Can this be made the same as children who are registered.
