"Sandbox Playschool felt like a second home for our child. When he was there he felt safe, loved, and supported, and he developed deep, secure, and respectful relationships with his playmates and his teachers."


"Polly is an expert at creating opportunities for children to explore their world with joyful abandon."

"My kid went to Sandbox from the time she was one to when she went to Kindergarten, and I genuinely cannot express enough gratitude that she got to spend her early years with Polly and Sandbox. They truly created a community. My kid was truly seen as the person she is, and she was given the space and care to grow into herself."

"The thoughtful care and fierce philosophy behind the program is unique and special. If you want you and your kid to be treated with respect and given the opportunity to become themselves, do not hesitate to send your kid to Sandbox."
