It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closure of The Roberts School after 48 enriching years of service to the Menlo Park community and its neighboring areas. Changes in the educational landscape, particularly the challenges presented by Covid and the introduction of Universal Preschool, have significantly affected our enrollment numbers.

Throughout these years, it has been an immense privilege to be entrusted with the care and education of your cherished children. The relationships we've built with each family have brought immeasurable joy to our lives, and these are bonds we will miss deeply.

As you move forward, we extend our warmest wishes for continued success and happiness to you and your families. Should you need any assistance or support, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Warm regards,
Brenda Roberts, Owner since 1975 ([email protected])
Elisa Barrett, Teacher and Director since 1994
Gini Flores, Teacher since 2006
Kristine Loftus, Teacher since 2019

Our Facility and Grounds


From first view, the school blends into the neighborhood and looks just like another single family home. We have never had a business sign but people seem to know that we are a school. Part of the charm of the school is that it once was a home to someone but has been a preschool even prior to 1975 when it became The Roberts School. The “homey feel” is apparent when one first walks in.

We have over a quarter of an acre of property

What we want potential parents to know is that our property goes back 200 feet from the street. We have our front building with 3 classrooms, another stand alone classroom in the back and three fabulous and huge play yards for the children’s outdoor play. The sand yard, grass yard and bark yard allow the children to run freely during their beloved outdoor play– morning and afternoon.
