A JUMPING castle, face painting and fun games are all great attractions but nothing can detract from the re-opening of the Bush Children's Emerald centre.

After being flooded at the start of the year, the centre is celebrating its re-opening today from 3pm to 5pm.

"This is a chance to celebrate being back at 100% capacity and seeing far more children," family health support worker Bronwyn White said.

"We had one metre of water through the whole centre. While the centre was being rebuilt, we operated out of a demountable."

In the demountable there was only one therapy room and an office for all the staff to work out of. The demountable didn't include the luxury of a toilet - instead staff had to use a portaloo.

"The one therapy room meant one patient at a time, now we can have up to four individual clients at any one time," Bronwyn said. "It was an experience. We can look back at it now and laugh but at the time it was rather stressful."
