Volunteers Rule!

We are blessed with an amazing group of individuals who support the children and staff at Silver Creek every single day.  They are our Classroom Volunteers (and one in the office---thank you, Claire! and Mary of Parent Room fame).  These volunteers are led by a Volunteer Coordinator (also a volunteer position), Sue DiBlasio.  Our volunteers all submit to a criminal reference check for serving vulnerable populations, and receive an orientation and some ongoing training by our staff. 

We are super fortunate to have the following people give so generously of their time and talent: 

Ginny; Kathy J; Mary; Michelle; Soon; Hannah; Margaret; Dora; Beth; Liz; Amy; Sue; Claire; Brenda; Kathy F; Virginia; Halima; Leona; Naomi; Karen; Mieke and Nancy.

As well our Board of Directors are all volunteers, making important decisions around the financial and forward movement of Silver Creek. We applaud: Gail Pennington, President; Colette Lafreniere-Pividori, Vice-President; Greg Chellew, Secretary; Laura Balbinot, Treasurer; Karen Anning; Lisa Wong Boivin; Liz Nolan; Joe Graci; Stephanie Sorensen; and Leslie Griesinger for their commitment to Silver Creek. 

As it is Volunteer Appreciation in April please take a moment to say thank you to our Silver Creek Volunteers.  Their work makes our school stronger and brighter for  children and their families. 



We live by the mantra “Miracles happen to those who believe in them” and we can certain attest to this because Silver Creek Pre-School has been our miracle.

Our son is non-verbal in the conventional manner, Silver Creek opened a world of communication for him, the use of Boardmaker™, sign language, implementing and using his augmentative communication device is but a few avenues where Piero’s world changed with Silver Creek.

Silver Creek you have changed our world. It’s hard to believe that this is Piero’s last year at Silver Creek, the staff as a whole has become true friends, we feel as though you are an extension of our family.  You have allowed Piero’s opportunities to be endless and supported all our challenges with a graceful “we can do it” approach.

No words could ever thank you all….forever in our hearts you will be!
