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.
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

Thank you Silver Creek Pre-School for welcoming me as an observer to your program. I learned so much about paying attention to every little detail in supporting a child who needs assistance in taking small steps to reach their larger goal. The staff at Silver Creek Pre-School are very special professionals who demonstrate how precious life is to our little 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!
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.

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!
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.
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 advisers whenever I have questions or concerns about my child.
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.

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.
