A Sandbox Child is
a Well-Loved Child!

A Trusted, Experienced Day Care Provider

Welcome to Sandbox Schools, where we excel in early childhood development, care, and education! Our programs are designed to maximize your child's learning potential while fostering their inter-social skills and behaviors. We focus on coordinating our activities to the individual child's pace, allowing for all their needs to be met. Additionally, our curriculum offers a balance between quiet, reflective times and physically active times.

We have an extremely high return rate, with most of our first-year children returning the following year. And each one of our five centers has at least one teacher on staff who was once a Sandbox student themselves! Sandbox graduates still keep in touch, allowing us to see our children land successful careers and grow into intelligent, confident, and productive adults. See what sets us apart by visiting one of our locations in the southwest suburbs of Homer Glen, Midlothian, Palos Heights, Palos Hills, and Orland Park, Illinois.

  • Sometimes it will be in their heart

About Us

At Sandbox Schools, we have been successfully serving the youngest citizens in our community for over 50 years. We're proud of the exceptional reputation we've earned as a preschool and day care provider. This is due to the talents and experience of the fantastic people that make up our staff; our directors have more than 30 years of experience, and our administrators have Master's degrees! As a result of our low staff turnover, you can rely on having the same dedicated individuals take the finest care of your child. Depend on us to keep you informed and help your child successfully transition from preschool and kindergarten to grade school.

Mission Statement

Each child possesses creativity and must be treated with respect in a properly prepared environment where each child is allowed to progress at his or her own pace. Each child will flourish and develop a love for learning, and will learn to love themselves, their friends, and the world around them.
