History


Roberta Webb Childcare Center is a non-profit, United Way Agency which opened its doors on November 14 1994 in the Northeast neighborhood of Harrisonburg Virginia. The center committed to serving children ages 2-5 years of age and to provide affordable, licensed care in a safe and nurturing environment.


Who was Roberta Webb?
Roberta Morgan Webb was an early childhood teacher who built her home in Harrisonburg Virginia. Over the years, many neighborhood children received childcare in her home. She married and raised three daughters, continuing her contributions as a social worker in the Harrisonburg Community. Many of Roberta's strengths grew out of her background, the grandparents who raised her stressed family ties and the value of education.
