I brought a few valid concerns to the director and she became very defensive. Within a weeks time frame two different employees, the director and another, informed me of two different times that were acceptable to pay tuition. I had been paying monthly for the past year. The director told me that it was ok for me to continue since I had never been late. The following week I was told that since I had not paid my tuition for the precious week my daughter could not attend and I was charged a late fee. I brought up the point that an unauthorized visitor was allowed to have contact with my child and told them that they had a security issue. The director proceeded to throw what she had heard about my personal life into my security concern, claiming she knew what MY problem was. They also serve pop tarts and honey buns for snack to 1 and 2 year olds. The teachers, including the director, all have smoke breaks out front of the facility through out the day. On top of it all my child LOVED her 1 year old teacher but after being in the 2 year old class for 4 months still cries everyday when I drop her off.

I went to Sandcastle learning center since I was a baby starting at 1 1/2 years old and I discovered that the director was very unhelpful and only had favorites and I always thought I would have been a favorite but I was never and it tought me something because when I was in first grade one of the directors favorites called me a loser and so it tought me something about the director the afterschool program is the worst but I have had some amazing teachers like Ms. Carolynn and Mrs. Hannah so if your child is young I do suggest taking them there it is just the director and she is very unhelpful.

My girls have been at Sandcastle for 6 years. My oldest started when she was 2 and my youngest has been there since she was 6 weeks. Graduation for my youngest is tonight and we will miss Sandcastle VERY much! :-( Sandcastle is a great daycare. The staff has gone out of their way to make sure my kids have been very well taken care of while they enjoy their childhood away from mom and dad. Sandcastle is very clean and up to standards in every way possible.

The Sandcastle in Port Orange in very unprofessional. At first I thought it was a loving learning environment until they showed their true colors. It is not the teachers that are the problem, it is the director. Very unprofessional.

Was very surprised anyone would question the menu or cleanliness of any of the 3 Sandcastle centers. My child has attended for 4 years and I have never seen the center dirty or felt he did not get a full meal and snack daily. Each teacher at Sandcastle takes pride in the center and classrooms and lovingly watches over all the students. I do not believe you could find ANY other place as good as them and hope you will go visit one of the centers and then compare them to ANY other center in this area. That is what I did and I could not be happier.

my child has attended Sandcastle for the past 3 years. I have never seen nor heard any parent complaining about the food served to the children. Yes every now and again they will have a cookie or brownie but my god you can not tell me you have never given that to your child at home. and as far as the center being clean i can speak for every parent in port orange you WILL NOT find a center cleaner or with friendlier or better staff.

The local director Ms Alanna was nice until I started asking her questions about the menu and cleaning procedures... She makes a monthly menu based on sugar cookies. brownies etc. Don't care about food pyramid and food requirements. So Our children can't get enough nutrients to develop properly! Another problem was with little toilets. They don't clean THEM like supposed to! Parents be very careful!!!

My son loves school since being enrolled at Sandcastle Learning Center. His social skills have improved greatly and he is always learning something new everyday. Compared to other childcare facilities, Sandcastle is extremely clean. The tuition is very reasonable for full-time. The only negative about this facility is that they do not offer part-time student which is what I had originally wanted.

PROS: Friendly, fun teachers/clean
CONS: Do not offer part-time students--full-time only
