The staff at Bert Ambrose Elementary is proud to be a child-focused school, focusing on learning with a collaborative staff and supportive parenting community, ensuring every child has a nurturing, welcoming learning environment. Bert Ambrose Elementary also participates in an Early Learning program called “Ready, Set, Learn!”, which is sponsored by the Ministry of Education as well as the Ministry of Children & Family Development and the Ministry of Health, enables schools and communities to reach out to and provide information to families and young children. The goals of the initiative include making early connections between schools, communities, and families with young children; provide families with invaluable information about local schools and contacts in the community; and give schools the opportunity to showcase their schools and their benefits. All “Ready, Set, Learn!” activities and events are put together by each school who participates in the initiative, and just a few of the activities organized by Bert Ambrose Elementary include “Families in Motion”, reading and story hours for young children and toddlers, and more.
