We are always investing in our children’s educational and therapeutic needs. From programs, equipment, and technology to helping children access the school via transportation, there are many ways you can make a difference.
Silver Creek has been serving children with physical and developmental challenges since 1975 when local parents petitioned the provincial government for funding and support in starting a program to serve the pre-academic and therapeutic needs of their children. The school has grown from seven students in 1975 to more than 60 children being served annually. Government assistance is now provided by Toronto’s Children's Services through subsidies directly to qualifying families, and through...[read more]
My daughter first attended Silver Creek when she was 2 years old and it was the first time I left her in the care of someone outside our family. The teachers and staff at Silver Creek were so empathetic and understanding and made the process less stressful for both my daughter and myself.
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

David flourished at Silver Creek and so did I. The staff became my friends and a great emotional support to me. They helped with equipment suggestions, sources of extra funding, and co-ordinating David’s school placement at Sunnyview P.S. Well, David moved on but I stayed. I have been on the Board of Directors since 1998, and President for the past 5 years. Silver Creek is a magical place!
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 staff and community are exceptional. The support we have received and the early learning experiences our child has had there will set him up for a more integrated life. And support my spouse and I have received has helped us so much as we navigate our roles as parents

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.
The staff at Silver Creek see the children as a ‘whole child’ i.e. well beyond any special needs that they might have, and see them as individuals with lots of strengths in different ways. For me, I have learned that the more work I can put into helping my child, the more she will be able to achieve her goals, and they can be small goals so we can celebrate success often. You are a very special group of people and you have definitely made a huge positive impact in our lives.
My son Aleksander currently attends Silver Creek. My only disappointment is that we didn’t discover Silver Creek sooner. The amount of love, kindness and support he has received has surpassed all my expectations. The staff and other children never fail to put a smile on both our faces. Every child and staff member will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

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.

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.

Our workshop was well attended yesterday evening. The family therapist, Andrea Rawson, got everyone busy assembling a self-care kit to help them fight FOMO.
An “In case of FOMO emergency kit” with four things in it.
1- A flower: to stop to smell the flowers and take a deep breath. 2- A tea bag: to remember to do something that soothes you. 3- A Coffee crisp: to remember to take a coffee break. 4- Play dough: to remember to play with your child and focus on the most important things in your life.
What would you add to this emergency kit? Leave your comments below and let’s all fight FOMO together!
