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. 

Testimonial

Before Silver Creek, Talie's life was a seemingly never ending series of doctors appointments and therapy appointments.  This was never more apparent than the day she told a neighbour that she got her hair cut 'at the doctor's".  Silver Creek has changed her scope of life in so many ways.  She is able to get a lot of the different therapies she needs all under one roof; and all of that happens in a structured nursery school setting.  She has made great friends and looks forward to school each day.  The staff at Silver Creek are wonderful people and amazing at what they do.  They are a great resource to have as well; very knowledgeable, willing and able to help us as parents through the complicated process of raising a child with special needs.  

Thank you Silver Creek staff for all of the miracles you perform each day.
