In the Silver Creek classrooms--toddler and pre-school--we provide a creative, playful, and fun variety of multi-sensory activities to encourage learning. The work of children is play and it is easy to see that in our setting. We know that learning opportunities come from experiences and we provide some very unique opportunities for your children.
We employ a modified Emergent Curriculum to enhance children’s individual inquiry approach to play-based learning. Building upon the children’s interests and adding to those interests in order to encourage experiential learning is fun and exciting. It also takes involvement from the teachers and support staff to observe and engage the children, encouraging them to develop new skills by introducing early academic concepts, providing for self exploration, engaging in social situations and encouraging independence and self awareness. Children are provided with a tailored program that fits their ability level and learning style.
As many of our students have physical challenges, we make certain that play activities can be accessed by making modifications and accommodations to seating, play materials, positioning and the use of technology to support whatever the need might be. We embrace an interdisciplinary team approach in the classroom to make certain that all children are engaged in the activities.
We also have a new naturalized, accessible out-of-doors play space that will be used as an outdoor classroom. This space will open in late 2015 and we are very excited to experience the learning opportunities in all areas--math, science, mobility, sensory, music, art, and physical activity--that this new green space will provide.
Cuando me recomendaron Silver Creek me dio mucho miedo separarme de mi hija Victoria aunque sea por varias horas , ya que desde que ella nacio no me habia separado ni un solo momento , pero me di cuenta que ese grupo de personas que trabajan alli son unos exelentes profesionales , que no solo entregan su conocimiento a los ninos sino que entregan su corazon y mi Victoria no solamente aprendio muchas cosas interesantes que la van ha ayudar en su futuro, tambien en su condicion fisica Silver Creek posee un grupo muy profesional y constante que me ayudaron mucho con lo que Victoria necesitaba.

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.

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.
I will never forget the moments when interacting with my children’s teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapist and volunteers how obvious it was they were fulfilling their truest calling in supporting them and all children. I feel profoundly lucky and grateful knowing that my children’s path forward is brighter now because of them.
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.

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.
