The Ambrose Family Center Preschool is guided and inspired by the collaboration of our dedicated staff which includes administrators, administrative support, classroom teachers, support staff, family support specialists, special education staff, a social worker and a full-time nurse. We are committed to our vision and work each day to live out our beliefs that put children first.
Our staff is prepared with years of study and professional experience. Our teachers have appropriate degrees and certifications and are trained in the Project Construct curriculum. Professional growth and learning is a priority for all staff in order to maintain the high standards of the Webster Groves School District and current best practices in the field of early childhood education. Staff members are also First Aid and CPR certified as well as registered with the Family Care Safety Registry. Unlike many preschools, we do not experience ongoing turnover of staff- we have a stable, committed, outstanding team at Ambrose.
We further our professional commitments to the field of early learning by being affiliated with many professional organizations that support early childhood education. These organizations include the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC); Rivers Bend Association for the Education of Young Children, the Missouri Association for the Education of Young Children (MOAEYC); and the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance (NAREA).
The Ambrose Family Center staff supports the work of our community and are advocates for public awareness related to early care and education. Our staff stay current on policy changes at the state, local and national level that affect services and resources available for children and families. Nothing matters more in our work with children than meaningful relationships that enhance the quality of life of children, families and the community at large.
