Annandale North Out Of School Hours Care Association

Our Philosophy

We see childhood as a unique and valuable stage of life where we are committed to providing enriching and happy experiences.

Children are encouraged to express themselves and direct their experiences while being supported to take responsibility for their actions, words, and decisions.

Open communication and positive partnerships with families, educators, children, and the community is seen as essential in providing the best care for children.

ANOOSHCA feels strongly about providing opportunities for children to be able to slow down, relax, and reflect.


ANOOSHCA is a not for profit, independent service which is managed by a committee made up of parents who use the service, all of whom volunteer their time and expertise.  

We are directly impacted by the NSW Government recent decision regarding independent parent-run services.

Care Alternatives

Children can waitlist a maximum of 12 months prior to their commencement at ANPS.  We are now accepting waitlist applications for children commencing school in 2023.  

However, WHOOSH Care may be able to provide care for your child until such time as ANOOSHCA can offer positions.  WHOOSH is in no way affiliated to ANOOSHCA.
