What are we all about: Over 30 years of care experience!
Do you need before and after school care for your child? Perhaps you are looking for a nursery school... Then look no further! Our goal is to provide your family with affordable care.
* We Welcome School-Age Kids, Morning and Afternoon

Full day and half day care, school closings, delays and holidays we are open and ready to care for your child. 
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 Playhouse has got you covered.

Our before- and after-care programs go well beyond homework help. We support all your childrens needs.  We give 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.

​No start up or membership fees
Shelly's Playhouse is a  fully insured and NY state licensed care center in Tappan NY. 

Transportation Provided Door to Door by South Orangetown School district. We greet the children everyday, and walk them safely into our facility. 

* New as of 2021 we have opened a nursery school on site called Rising Stars
