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.
Thank you Silver Creek Pre-School for welcoming me as an observer to your program. I learned so much about paying attention to every little detail in supporting a child who needs assistance in taking small steps to reach their larger goal. The staff at Silver Creek Pre-School are very special professionals who demonstrate how precious life is to our little children.

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.
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.
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.

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!
Fadhil has become a more confident boy ready to take on the world. He is able to sign and communicate his needs very efficiently. I am no longer worried about how he will do in school because of the great accomplishments that I have seen while he was at Silver Creek. Thank you for giving us courage and strength.
The Gedi Family
Thanks to the amazing support at Silver Creek, my daughter has been thriving in all areas. The team there is approachable, professional and incredibly committed. I am so grateful to be working with such a dedicated group of people who are passionate about helping my daughter achieve success.
I will never forget the impact that Silver Creek had on our family and more importantly Piero’s success in transitioning into mainstream school. Always a challenge but without a doubt you and your team made all the unknowns not as daunting as them seemed.
Susy Gallucci, mom of Piero
Silver Creek offers one-on-one attention to all children that strives to bring out the very best in each child, regardless of what their needs are. By far, one of the best benefits of the program is the staff, who are loving and supportive and who go well beyond expectations on a daily basis.
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
