Candyland Child Development Center

My name is Sandy Christman, and I have an Associates in Disability Services. I worked in daycare centers for 5 years before I opened my own home childcare center, 14 years ago.

My home child care center provided me the opportunity to stay home with my own two children. I'm currently getting my CDA and have been CPR/First Aid Certified for over 20 years.

My husband, Levi, and I decided to open Candyland Child Development Center as we saw the need in our community for quality childcare services. I generally care about children and each child's individual developmental needs.

Our state of the art building is approximately 8200 sq. feet. We have high definition streaming cameras in every classroom. Our child care facility is close to Ellsworth Air Force Base, just off Liberty Boulevard in Box Elder, South Dakota. Candyland is licensed to care for up to 140 children.
