Programs & Services

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

Every child has an individualized program within the group classroom setting.

Assessments and goal setting occur throughout the year, with the parents and the teaching/therapy team, so that every child's individual needs are addressed.

What makes our program at Silver Creek unique is that therapy--physio, occupational, speech and language and music therapy-- services are provided within the classroom setting. There is also the opportunity for some small group sessions and individual treatment, as needed.

Our philosophy is that therapy is an integral part of the children's day. It is not an exercise program of a specific length, but rather a matter of proper handling, movement, seating, communication and cognitive expectations-developmentally appropriate-- throughout daily routines and play. We are working towards optimum independence in self-help skills and community living for our children.

This integration of services allows your child to continue improving his/her gross motor, fine motor, communication and daily living skills under the guidance of these professionals while enjoying the play, pre-academic and social setting with peers.

Our weekly program consists of four half-days with a wide variety of play-based experiences (Monday through Thursday)

Testimonial

 

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!
