Program Descriptions/Hours of Operation
HTSACC program operates at all three of the Hanover Township public elementary schools - Bee Meadow School, Salem Drive School and Mountview Road School.
The elementary schools have two HTSACC programs that operate according to the Hanover Township Public Schools calendar. In grades K-5, children may register for 1-5 days per week.
Earlybirds-EB: Program Hours- 7:30-8:45*
Earlybirds was designed with the "early riser" in mind. Our program provides fun, low-stress activities such as board games, puzzles, cards, and simple arts/crafts. We also provide a light breakfast.
*Please note: After 8:30 AM we are dismissing the children to school. If you arrive at school after 8:30 please use the regular morning line-up procedure instead of bringing your child into Early Birds.
After School Kids – ASK: Program Hours- 3:05 -6:00
The After School Kids program is designed to allow the children to explore their own interests through the various materials provided for “free play” and through the activities that are provided regularly by the staff. These activities include arts and crafts, board games, science projects, cooking and organized indoor and outdoor games. HTSACC staff work with the children in order to develop programming that meets the needs and the interests of a multi-aged group of children. A quiet time is available each day for the children to work on their homework.
The school calendar includes a number of days when early dismissal of students is required. On early dismissal days, the children spend an extended period of time in After Schools Kids. Children registered for the day that the Early Dismissal falls on will be dismissed to HTSACC at 12:45 PM. There is NO school lunch or milk on half days - please be sure to send in a lunch and beverage with your child. If your child is not registered for a day that an Early Dismissal falls on, you can use our Unscheduled Attendance option - please call the office to reserve your space. The cost of half day Unscheduled Attendance is $45.00 per child, per day.
Elementary schools 12:45 PM-6:00 PM

Camp HTSACC creates an atmosphere that is different from the programs during the school year by implementing “day camp like” practices. The summer program allows children to participate in daily staff led activities. The summer program provides swimming twice a week and a weekly field trip. The summer program will operate for a maximum of 8 weeks beginning the first full week after the last day of school scheduled on the District Calendar. Based on this year's calendar, the tentative start date for Camp HTSACC is Monday, June 26th and we are planning on an 8 week camp!
