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.

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!
Our twins started at Silver Creek in the fall of 2009. I knew they were in excellent hands and I saw them progress so rapidly. I was very concerned about their development prior to starting Silver Creek and in no time, they were at the same level as the rest of their peers. The impact the staff at Silver Creek has had on our children has been tremendous. We are happy that our twins will benefit from another year under their guidance.
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!
My husband and I are so grateful for the wonderful and exceptional team of teachers, therapists and volunteers at Silver Creek. It is inspirational and beautiful to witness daily the love, passion and dedication that they have for each and every child/student, and their professions. They are the very best!
The things I like about Silver Creek: 1. Playing on the computer 2. Playing dress-up with my friends 3. I like when the teachers read books to me 4. I also liked to spend time with Bill. He used to tell me jokes.They were very, very, very, very funny. 5. My favourite activity was listening to music

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
I am always in awe at the great variety and quality of the activities that your staff bring to the outdoor space. The range of activities and the attention to detail is quite a feat. Amazing really. Thank you for all that you do.
Polly Sutton, Mother of Ethan
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.
Danna Broadworth and Matt Amann

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.
