Ana OOSH offers a range of supervised activities that encourage your children to expand their interests – exploring nature and animals to encourage environmental sustainability, supporting their autonomy and sense of agency, and developing a sense of becoming, being and belonging within groups.
Our educators advocate children’s learning through meaningful interactions with peers and educators based on the My Time Our Place Framework to achieve learning outcomes.
Our program co-ordinator has developed both structured and unstructured programs that provide planned, age-related activities designed to enhance the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of each child.
The daily programs and activities are chosen to provide a learning environment which encourages children to be involved in activities that enhance self-expression and confidence through such areas as art, craft and sport.
Morning tea is provided in the morning session,

Ana OOSH supports the completion of school homework by providing a separate space within the facility which is conducive to study.
Children are actively encouraged to use their time towards the completion of school set homework tasks but they are not forced to do so. If you require your children to do their homework, please speak with the co-ordinator.
