Sandbox is open June 1 and accepting new enrollements!


We are throwback to when life was more simple!  Here at Sandbox you won't find a steril Preschool designed for the masses, but an intimate, beautiful learning setting, inside and out!  Our play yard is nestled in between mature fruit trees such as avocado, lemon, orange, banana and pomegranite.  Along with a seasonal vegetable garden and a Mud Kitchen, there is nothing short of an outside play experience that is unmatchable in Pacific Beach.   For more pics check out our instagram page @sandboxbythesea.

Who We Are

What We Are
We are a unique center that offers a preschool program within a home-based facility.  We have a cozy, home-like atmosphere, and a Christian environment where parents can feel safe and secure that their children can play and explore in our beautiful play-yard and indoor/outdoor style classroom under the care of quality teachers.
Unlike many other child care center options, we are owner directed and operated. Our personal attention to the staff we hire, and to the students and the families that come here, prove our fourteen-year reputation for consistent high standards in excellent  education and care.
