About Sandcastle Early Learning Center

Sandcastle Early Learning Center is a ministry of St Francis De Sales and was founded in 1981 by the Sisters of Notre Dame. 

Sandcastle has enriched the West 7th neighborhood in St Paul, by being an upstanding member of the small business community and a valued childcare provider since 1981. Its staff of 45 care for more than 110 children daily, from babies in the infant room (as young as six weeks of age!) to children in the toddler, pre-school, and pre-k classrooms. 

Sandcastle was the first child care center in Minnesota to be accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and its outstanding programming has earned the Parent Aware Highest Possible 4 Star rating.
