I am a trained, certified Waldorf Early Childhood Educator. I have worked as a Kindergarten/Preschool Assistant teacher for 18 years and am an experienced Nanny/Family Assistant as well as having raised my own college-aged child. I hold 19 ECE units and maintain ongoing professional development. I have worked with children of all ages including children with learning differences. For families concerned about children's media consumption, I specialize in raising children with mindfulness about screen-time usage and understand the challenges inherent in this lifestyle choice, though I am amenable and adaptable to your family's preferences. Using developmentally age-appropriate activities, I'm very experienced in creating quality, holistic environments to occupy children's time. I am qualified to help children with homework and am experienced with infants, including preemies. I am Trust Line verified by the state of California and have excellent professional references.

We were lucky to meet Roberta through Sittercity this past month. She promptly connected and understood my urgent need for childcare for a whole week. I found her quick-thinking and easy-going manner such a positive for my needs during the week she was babysitting. She immediately and wholly took to my son, who also took a quick fondness to her. Roberta is not only skilled as a sitter but also very comfortable to be around. She embodies a high level of empathy, compassion, and respect - values that any parent should require in a sitter. I needed someone this kind and flexible!
