The wait is over! Families in the Eurobodalla now have access to the new Muddy Puddles Therapy Centre in Batemans Bay.
This exciting new facility has been over three years in the making and started as an idea for attracting more services to the region for children with a disability. The parents and community members who have contributed to the development of Muddy Puddles have worked tirelessly to see this vision realised.
Already providing services to over 80 children per month, supply cannot keep up with demand. Cate McMath, CEO of Muddy Puddles, is planning to expand the team to meet the growing needs of families. “We are looking for innovative and passionate therapists and educators to join our team to create something really special for the community in the Eurobodalla,” Ms McMath says.
With plenty of space for individual consultations and group development programs, and lovely sensory spaces, the new building is ticking all the boxes for families. Helen Minns, mother of Lachlan who accesses Muddy Puddles services, says “We always feel included by the multidisciplinary team at Muddy Puddles. To be able to access a broad range of services, from such a welcoming, family friendly space, is a real bonus for us.”
The community is invited to the official opening of Muddy Puddles on Friday 19 October at 2pm. “The opening will be a chance to thank all those who played a part in the Muddy Puddles Therapy Centre and for people to have a look through the fabulous building. It is a great community resource that would not have been possible without a huge amount of local support.” says Cate McMath.
