Grandparents play such an important role in the lives of all children.
Often, they are regular carers of children with a disability and provide invaluable support for parents requiring additional assistance.
Last week, children’s therapy service Muddy Puddles invited those special grandparents along to plant a beautiful sensory garden with the children in the early years therapy intervention program.
Together with the Muddy Puddles team, grandparents and children enjoyed a sumptuous morning tea amongst the freshly planted rosemary, lemon thyme, salvias, nasturtiums, lemon balm and liquorice basil.
As part of NSW Grandparents Day, Muddy Puddles was successful in its application for a small grant to fund the purchase of a vegetable pod to house the new sensory garden.
This portable pod will be easy to relocate to the new Muddy Puddles Therapy Centre in Catalina once it’s completed in 2018.
Muddy Puddles is a not-for-profit organisation offering therapy and education programs for children and young people with a disability, their families and the community to promote development, awareness and inclusion.
Concerned parents and community members who wanted more services in the Eurobodalla founded the service in 2014.
