The parent program at Silver Creek Pre-School is a support network that aims to empower parents and enable families to advocate for their children. Because of its positive impact, Silver Creek continues to make significant enhancements to this program, and is happy to see how its expansion has allowed more access to support for parents.
With a parent support staff member available in person on set days at the school, as well as through email, the parent program offers increasing resources for families. The program is family-driven and is there to offer support in any way you need. We offer information about available community and health services, help with completing applications, and counsel and guidance in managing personal matters. Please ask, we are here to support you and help you find answers!
Our dedicated space in the school, the Parent Room, is a welcoming place to gather, obtain information, or to simply relax and chat with other parents. Rich social support networks often develop between our families this way, extending into friendships beyond school walls. As one parent has put it, this is her “Silver Creek family.”
As part of our parent support program, Silver Creek also offers a series of support group sessions, led by a professional family therapist. These sessions are aimed at addressing issues such as self-care, family connections, school transitions and sharing in the joys and challenges of caring for a child with special needs. These sessions are held throughout the year, and all parents are notified and invited to participate if they choose. Our families are appreciated as partners in the provision of services to the children, and we have learned that the greatest insight and change is often achieved through the sharing of information between parents.
Silver Creek is a wonderful, caring and enriching experience for pre-schoolers. The program met our expectations (which were high!) because we had spoken with other parents whose children previously attend Silver Creek Pre-School. The teachers and staff exceeding our expectations.

I am extremely pleased with the teachings that Silver Creek provided for my daughter. I have noticed quite an improvement in her knowledge of the alphabet, numbers, and colours. I am looking forward to my son joining Silver Creek in 2011. I know the education he will receive there will benefit him.
The staff at Silver Creek are some of the most gifted teachers that I have met and while showing such love and compassion for all their students, they also have the unique ability to push students out of their comfort zone to help them excel in all areas of development.
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.

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!
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.
