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

Virginia “Gini” Flores

I am delighted to have joined The Roberts School Family in the Fall of 2006. Since 1993 I cared for and taught children ages 2 months to 5 years in my Home Family Day Care before joining Roberts School. I enjoy attending lectures, classes and conferences geared towards Early Childhood Education. I received my Early Childhood Education units from Foothill College and I am currently attending Canada College to receive my AA degree in ECE. I have been happily married to my husband for over 25 years and feel blessed to have two terrific young adult children. My son is attending Foothill College and is employed at Facebook. My daughter is a Phoenix College graduate and a mother of one, my loving grandson Shai.
