Presently Silver Creek provides transportation through First Student Canada coach lines with car seats that are properly tethered in each vehicle.
The Transportation service is highly subsidized by SC through fundraising efforts. The cost of this enhancement to the program is over $130,000/year. For parents who are able to pay, we do invoice approximately 25% of the full cost. Please speak to the director of SC or a member of the board of directors if you have questions.
Our catchment area is about a 12 km. radius in all directions from the school. We primarily serve all of Etobicoke, parts of North York and some of the former city of York. If this service is necessary for you, please make certain you are in our catchment area by checking with the director of Silver Creek.
We are not able to accommodate every child who attends Silver Creek on this transportation system.
We thank our many parents who can provide their own transportation for their children, as this is a great help in allowing us to transport the children who have no other way of getting to school.
We also thank our many donors who make this service possible for families of children who could not access our program without this support.
The things I like about Silver Creek: 1. Playing on the computer 2. Playing dress-up with my friends 3. I like when the teachers read books to me 4. I also liked to spend time with Bill. He used to tell me jokes.They were very, very, very, very funny. 5. My favourite activity was listening to music

Thanks to the amazing support at Silver Creek, my daughter has been thriving in all areas. The team there is approachable, professional and incredibly committed. I am so grateful to be working with such a dedicated group of people who are passionate about helping my daughter achieve success.
Since Xavier has been diagnosed with Sandhoff disease, my family’s lives have been turned upside down. It has been difficult for us to find a place for our family in the community. And then we found Silver Creek, it is like a second home to us. I would love the opportunity to give back to Silver Creek.
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.
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.
Mother of Silver Creek Student
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.
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.

Silver Creek offers one-on-one attention to all children that strives to bring out the very best in each child, regardless of what their needs are. By far, one of the best benefits of the program is the staff, who are loving and supportive and who go well beyond expectations on a daily basis.
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!
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!
