Silver Creek has a rich history of volunteerism--we were founded by volunteers and 40 years later volunteers continue to play a strong role in our thriving organization--in the classroom, the office, in our newly constructed naturalized play space, and on the Board of Directors. And many of our fundraising activities were established by volunteers from the community--these funds being crucial to the operations of Silver Creek.
We always welcome volunteer help. You must be over 18 years of age to participate in our volunteer program. Our Volunteer Coordinator, Sue DiBlasio, will be happy to review your application, interview you and show you the hands-on work that happens at Silver Creek. We will try to meet your needs as you so generously offer to help us. Please note that a Vulnerable Sector Police Check must be satisfactorily completed, and your immunizations up-to-date before you can start as a volunteer. We also request a minimum 10 months commitment to the program.
We encourage your support for one morning or one afternoon per week in the classroom, or to assist in the office, and/or helping at our fundraising events. We have a newly established gardening opportunity with our naturalized play space. We are run by a volunteer Board of Directors and can use your expertise in administration, finances, PR, ways and means, or positive attitude and energy! Parents are a huge bonus on the Board, as are community members.

Thank you for considering offering your time and talents to help us help the children.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
