Program Overview

‘Tween School ‘n Home Child Care Program (TSNH) is a private, community-based, state-licensed, non-profit after-school program which operates out of Harold Martin School in Hopkinton, New Hampshire.  It is committed to providing a safe, fun-filled space with activities which excite, encourage, educate and engage children in grades K through 6 living in the Hopkinton School District and attending both Harold Martin School and Maple Street School.

.In September of 1983, TSNH began under the supervision of Shaker Road School in Concord.  We opened our doors at the Hopkinton Community Center with an enrollment of six children and a staff of one.  In January of 1984, the Program was incorporated as the second after-school program in the State of New Hampshire.  TSNH founders, Rose Pound and Linda Ottery, envisioned an economical, quality child-care program that would help parents avoid leaving children at home alone.

Each child is treated with dignity and respect in an effort to bring out his/her very best.  All staff members are charged with maintaining a safe and healthy environment for children.  Each exhibits a community spirit that makes every child feel valued and included.

The Program is licensed to serve 50 children a day.  The average daily attendance is 40.  TSNH maintains a staff-to-child ratio of 1:8, double the state-mandated requirement.

Hours of Operation

TSNH follows the Hopkinton School District calendar and is open from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. every day school is in session.  If school is closed for the day, the Program is closed (holidays, snow days, teachers’ workshops, school vacations).  The Program does operate on early-release days, opening at 12 noon. It also operates if school starts but then is dismissed early.   TSNH does not operate during the summer months.
