Silver Creek has a rich history of volunteerism--we were founded by volunteers and 40 years later volunteers continue to play a strong role in our thriving organization--in the classroom, the office, in our newly constructed naturalized play space, and on the Board of Directors. And many of our fundraising activities were established by volunteers from the community--these funds being crucial to the operations of Silver Creek.
We always welcome volunteer help. You must be over 18 years of age to participate in our volunteer program. Our Volunteer Coordinator, Sue DiBlasio, will be happy to review your application, interview you and show you the hands-on work that happens at Silver Creek. We will try to meet your needs as you so generously offer to help us. Please note that a Vulnerable Sector Police Check must be satisfactorily completed, and your immunizations up-to-date before you can start as a volunteer. We also request a minimum 10 months commitment to the program.
We encourage your support for one morning or one afternoon per week in the classroom, or to assist in the office, and/or helping at our fundraising events. We have a newly established gardening opportunity with our naturalized play space. We are run by a volunteer Board of Directors and can use your expertise in administration, finances, PR, ways and means, or positive attitude and energy! Parents are a huge bonus on the Board, as are community members.

Thank you for considering offering your time and talents to help us help the children.
Everyone at Silver Creek has been extremely compassionate, professional, patient and persistent in helping my child with her activities daily. As a result, my child has made significant improvements in all her developmental areas and in particular, her motor skills.
Thank you all for all of your hard work and all of the feedback regarding Alexa. Your dedication towards my daughter’s continued development is inspiring. Alexa is extremely fortunate to have so many people in her life ready to support and inspire her to do things we were not sure were possible.

The staff at Silver Creek are a very special group of professionals who I find care deeply for the children they work with while at the same time pushing them to excel and surpass expectations often placed on children with disabilities. Thank you, Silver Creek!
The staff at Silver Creek have definitely exceeded my expectations in every way. They genuinely care about the children and work tirelessly every day for the benefit of the children. They also have a wealth of knowledge and have become my trusted advisors whenever I have questions or concerns about my child.
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

Since Xavier has been diagnosed with Sandhoff disease, my family’s lives have been turned upside down. It has been difficult for us to find a place for our family in the community. And then we found Silver Creek, it is like a second home to us. I would love the opportunity to give back to Silver Creek.
I cannot thank you enough for the exceptional care and love the Silver Creek Staff has shown my child. It will forever be a wonderful memory in Ella’s life and a great start to her educational career. Thank you.
We have seen tremendous gains in our daughter’s skills since she started at Silver Creek a year ago; her speech, mobility and play skills have really come along. The teachers and staff members at Silver Creek are dedicated to helping each child to reach their full potential and truly love what they do.

Silver Creek is a place like none other. Silver Creek allowed our confidence in our own abilities and decisions to be celebrated as Marasia’s world opened up in front our eyes. We are forever grateful for the exceptional staff at this very special place who make children (and their families) feel like superstars everyday.

Silver Creek is a wonderful, caring and enriching experience for pre-schoolers. The program met our expectations (which were high!) because we had spoken with other parents whose children previously attend Silver Creek Pre-School. The teachers and staff exceeding our expectations.
