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.
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.
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.

My two hearing impaired daughters were placed in classrooms with excellent peer language role models to assist in their language and articulation development. They received individualized programs to meet their needs. Silver Creek prepared them well for mainstream kindergarten. We are forever grateful.

Silver Creek has given my son the tools that are necessary to succeed in school, and in life. Their patience and love have guided my son to develop in ways that words can’t describe. He is a confident individual who thrives on challenges and I thank Silver Creek for that. Actually, I thank all the members of Silver Creek for all they have done. It is truly a great place to be.
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.

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.

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.
