We Welcome School-Age Kids, Morning and Afternoon
When you’re a working family with school-age children, finding reliable before- and after-school care can be hard to come by. Shelly's "PLAY" House has got you covered.

Our before- and after-care programs go well beyond homework help. We support all your childrens needs.  That means giving each child the space, encouragement, and materials they need to follow their dreams. Whether they want to be a leader of a group game, start a drama club, build a block tower, or create a craft using recycled materials, we are here to support their desire.  No matter where their talents take them, we create a positive, happy and healthy environment by providing games, STEM projects, creative arts, and plenty of playtime to keep kids happy, bright, and stimulated every day.

Transportation Provided Door to Door by South Orangetown Scool district. We greet the children eveyday, and walk them safely into our facilty.

Like all of you, I am adjusting to the current state and trying to figure out how to safely do my part. As you can imagine, my usual center based before and aftercare services have been impacted.
Based on guidance provided by NYS Office of Children and Family Services (see included notice below), and careful consideration, I am opting to make full day or part-time daycare services available to those that require it. My daycare services are fully licensed and insured. As always, I will include breakfast, lunch and snacks. We will have a scheduled day of doing homework, inclusive of art, music and exercise. My goal has always been to provide a safe, healthy, fun environment for all my students😊
To maintain distancing requirements and to ensure compliance with staff to student ratios, we are limiting participation to 6 children at any given time. I, the owner will be the onsite staff person so as not to put my staff in a compromised situation. If you find yourself in need of care, even with short notice, please reach out to me at 845 548 1857 or email: Shellsyplayhouseinc@gmail.com and you may also use the registration link above
