Our primary program is an early childhood classroom setting where therapeutic services are integrated throughout all activities.
What makes Silver Creek unique is that therapy services--physio, occupational, speech and language and music therapy--are provided within the classroom setting. There is also the opportunity for some small group sessions and individual treatment.
Every child has an individualized program within the group classroom setting. Assessments and goal setting occur throughout the year, collaboratively with parents and the teaching/therapy team, so that each child’s individual needs are addressed.
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, sensory experiences, 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. In our family-centred practice, school readiness is the long-term goal for all children, and it is part of Silver Creek’s mission to support our families in securing the next best educational placement for their child at age 4 or 5.
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 professionals while enjoying the play, pre-academic and social setting with peers.
Our weekly program consists of four half-days (Monday through Thursday) with a wide variety of play-based experiences.
We accept children who are 18 months of age through kindergarten age.

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.

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.
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.
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 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

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.

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.

The one-on-one attention, the follow through notes that the OT, the Speech and Language therapist or the music teacher, and everyone that’s involved is phenomenal. Silver Creek staff, you possess the healing hands and big hearts for looking after the welfare of our child in the areas we don’t know how.

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!
