Classroom

Families can enroll their children into either the morning or afternoon program in one of three classrooms (toddler, junior preschool, preschool). Children are enrolled in the class that best suits their needs. Our toddler program can accommodate 10 children (18mths to 2.5yrs) while our two preschool programs (2.5-4yrs) can accommodate up to 13 children.

Each classroom is supported by two Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) with a wealth of knowledge and understanding. Classrooms are considered learning environments, and are set up daily with developmentally appropriate play activities, which are geared to your child’s interest while providing for further skill development. Your child’s RECE Teachers are with the children at all program times throughout the week thus, providing a consistent and safe space for your child’s first school experience.

Therapy is incorporated into the daily program through the play program. The assigned therapist for each class is on-site two days per week.

Classrooms are busy, messy and fun. The children are happy, secure and excited.

Learning Spaces

Snoezelen

The Snoezelen is a safe and comfortable space for children to experience a range of sensory stimuli including light, touch, sound and smell. The Snoezelen room provides benefits to communication, behaviour and self-regulation and tension reduction.

Merlin's Magic Wand

At Silver Creek, we see magic happen every single day, and our new Merlin’s Magic Space ensures there will always be a place for children to come and play, to be delighted, and to learn in a safe space designed specifically with them in mind. Our gym allows children to have a dedicated space for gross motor and physical activity.

Outdoor Playground

Our natural playground supports opportunities for children to engage in non-competitive play. A constantly changing environment provides a space to explore, move, interact and create. An outdoor classroom promotes learning in a quiet and stress-free landscape.

Empowering Children

An inquiry-based education is facilitated through the inclusion of an emergent curriculum, enhancing student understanding and connecting learning to real-world application. Whether within the traditional classroom or through our interactive outdoor learning space, students receive personalized lessons targeting math, science, art, sensory actions mobility, and physical movement. Experiential learning ensures all children enjoy the learning process and engage with a variety of critical thinking processes. The introduction of early academic concepts provide room for personal exploration, as children develop independence and self-awareness alongside new social skills. At Silver Creek Pre School children are provided with a tailored program that fits their ability level and learning style.

Testimonials

Amy De Domenico

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.

Angela Pires

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.

Linda and Darcy DeMonte

The staff at Silver Creek are wonderful people and amazing at what they do. They are a great resource to have as well; very knowledgeable, willing and able to help us as parents through the complicated process of raising a child with special needs. Thank you Silver Creek

Maryanne Tecimer

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 Gedi Family

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.

Farah Fua and Roy Ramnarine

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.

Julie Guzzo

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.

Anonymous

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.

Maya Dansereau

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.
