Frequently Asked Questions
What age group is Sunflower Sandbox for?
The program is for Babies – 12 year olds – and parents get a lot of value from it too!
Do all members of my family need separate memberships?
You only need one membership per family – all children (and parents) are included.
How does enrollment work?
We ask all families to sign up before the 14th of the month. At initial sign-up, you choose the membership that’s right for your family. After that month, your membership auto-renews each month like a children’s museum membership.
You can change your membership level anytime before the 14th of the month. You may also suspend or cancel your membership before the 14th of the month.
Feel like you’d like a human to walk you through the process? We are always happy to help and can be reached on 561-501-6615, Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 3:00pm.
What if I enroll later in the month?
New members who join on or after the 15th of the month will be enrolled for the next month and auto-renewed going forward. You will be added to the Sandbox Facebook group to start enjoying Circle of Song right away and will be able to pick up your monthly Play Pack for the next month as soon as possible. The same change and cancellation process applies as described above.
Which membership levels have limited spaces?
Just for Littles, Nature Players and Sustainers are limited to ensure we are offering our members in-depth and intimate small group experiences. Sing & Play and Zoom Buddies have unlimited spaces available.
Do my benefits start immediately once I enroll?
You will be added to the Sandbox Facebook group to start enjoying Circle of Song right away. Play Packs and Borrow Bins will be available throughout the month you are enrolled and can be arranged for pick up with our office. Sessions on The Shire and The Seedlings Playscape can be booked through our office as well. These details (and many more specifics) will be provided in your enrollment email.

Yes! It is $125 for each additional 2 hours on The Seedlings Playscape and $100 for each 2 hours added on The Shire. Call us to sign up for a session.
What types of things can I expect in the Play Packs?
Play Packs are filled with open-ended, age-appropriate materials chosen to engage children’s senses and imaginations. Each month, your child will get a new box with new materials. In the past, we’ve included loose parts for nature and science experiments and exploration, watercolor paints and brushes for creative expression, musical tools like bells for making instruments, colorful pipe cleaners for whimsical play, and much more.
What types of things are in the Borrow Bins?
Our Sunflower Play Library is full of age-appropriate materials that engage a child’s sense of wonder about nature, the arts, science, math, engineering, creating, and more. Your child may get wooden trains and train tracks, miniature animals, or materials for pressing or making shapes into playdough. The possibilities are endless!
