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 video training is really helpful and makes it user friendly. Anytime we have called for assistance, the reps have been extremely friendly and helpful.

JW

Jill W.

The graphics are colorful and fun and can be edited if so desired. It invites parent involvement by letting them help modify their accounts and add their own photos and information.

AL

Amy L.

I like that it's very user friendly, there is a nice flow to the daily chart, it's color coordinated and very organized.

KS

Kimberly S.

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

There is no option for staff anniversaries and showing birthdays report. I can't add in both parents, in order to do so both parents need to have an email which I think is ridiculous.

SK

Sheena K.

I find the lack of updates minimal and teacher’s have said they struggle to figure out how to enter information into LifeCubby.

MN

Meg N.

Sometimes when you loose the internet connection you can not recover a video that was not send to the parents.
