With the unprecedented situation unfolding around the world at the moment, we wanted to take the time to check in with you and update you on our situation at Noah’s. As disability and early education services are considered essential services, Noah’s and Mundamia Early Learning Centre remain open.
At Noah’s, we will be continuing regular NDIS therapy sessions with children and families via Telehealth platforms (phone support also available). While we realise that this is a different approach for many families to adapt to, we have already been using these digital platforms within some of our programs with great success. An online therapy session works in much the same way that a face-to-face session works, with all the same elements and therapists working in partnership with parents to help each child achieve their individual goals.
We encourage all families to continue their child’s regular therapy wherever possible as it will have many positive effects for the whole family. Now, more than ever, is when families will need support and we are here to provide it. By continuing your child’s regular therapy you are also helping Noah’s as an organisation to survive this time of crisis and continue supporting families on the South Coast into the future.
We assure families with children attending Mundamia Early Learning Centre that our service will remain open unless there is any future directive from the Government. We have introduced a number of changes to routines and programs to provide the best possible environment for children at this time – please speak with your educator for more details. We take infection control seriously at all times, but especially now, with all health and hygiene measures maximised.
Our Plan Management services will continue as normal. Temporary changes have been made to many Noah’s programs and staff will be contacting affected families about these.
Please be assured that we are still here, just a phone call away, to discuss your family’s needs. We know this is a stressful time and we are always available to help and support you. We are very confident that this new way of doing things will be a great success. Thanks for your understanding and flexibility.
