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 parents love the real time updates and the staff loves the visual cues and intuitive use. I love that parents can pay online and I now receive over 90% of tuition in the first week of each month.

CJ

Christine J.

The excellent customer support we always receive. And the fact that they take our ideas and implement them the best they can.

PM

Pamela M.

We love the fact that Kangarootime has automated so much of our business processes. It's great to have one product that handles everything from accounting to employees to parents.

KF

Karla F.

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

When typing messages to parents, it lags terribly. We use this program on iPads and does not work well.

CB

Carolyn B.

Our parents have had some issues with the app and setting up their accounts. We have also had issues with the charges.

JS

Jennifer S.

Frankly, extremely disappointed with this program and the overall response time to one simple issue.
