Our son Freddie spent a wonderful year here and we credited Ivo and Natalie for contributing greatly to the well-adjusted, kind, loving child he's become. It was a joy to know every time he was dropped off that he would be surrounded by love, kindness and understanding!

Amalia Daycare is a fantastic daycare! My husband and I visited MANY daycares in our search for a quality place where we felt comfortable to leave our son, and this daycare is far and above the best we've ever come across.
My son was fortunate to attend this daycare for almost 2 years, and we loved everything about it! He loved going there every morning, and often he didn't want to leave when I came to pick him up. You can trust Ivo & Natalie 200%. They are attentive, loving parents themselves, and they will look after your child with the kindness and attention you would hope to find in a daycare.
They promote healthy eating, good social skills, and respect and empathy amongst the children. They are fantastic at conflict resolution, and they handle conflicts and meltdowns with such love and patience. They teach all the children to care about one another. They are so much more than just a daycare. The kids and the staff are more like a family, and it shows with all the homecooked meals, daily arts and crafts projects, weekly language and music classes and fun activities that are planned each and every single day. It's obvious that a lot of thought has gone into making a nurturing, fun, stimulating environment for children. It's well organized, and the daily activities are perfectly planned.
I can't say enough good things about this daycare. This is a safe, fun place for your child to learn and grow. Having my son at Amalia Daycare was a blessing, and I had such peace of mind leaving him there every morning knowing that he would have a great day.
My son still talks about this daycare everyday, and how much he misses them. If you're looking for a daycare in Santa Monica, I would highly recommend giving them a call and scheduling a visit.

Thank you so much Evalina for your nice words and for still visiting us after Alex is no longer here. Our gates are always open for you, Alex is a part of our family after so long being here and we would love to see him growing

I viewed several other daycares before picking this one. Of all of the ones I saw, this one looked the cleanest, the children in it seemed the happiest and the lady running it (Natalie) as well as the other staff seemed to genuinely enjoy taking care of the kids and gave them plenty of attention. My daughter has been here over a year now and it is still exactly like that. My daughter enjoys going here and playing with all the other kids and even complains when I come to pick her up! I am very happy I chose this daycare and would recommend it to anyone looking for a daycare.

Thank you so much Irene for your nice words. Tara is all grown up now and it is amazing to see how children grow and remember us after so many years. We are always happy to stay in touch with our families.

I REALLY recommend this place to every family. Very clean and nice place. My 3 y.o. daughter just started last month. She is always busy sculpturing, drawing, reading, dancing, telling stories. When I ask her what she was busy with, she can't even tell me all the activities as she was doing so many things. She is in love with madam Catherine. I love the idea of a family daycare as the place is not overloaded. My daughter is happy and that's all I need. Highly recommend this place!

Thank you so much Rita. It is very touching to stay in touch after so many years. We hope to see how Michelle is all grown up and will become a doctor to make people healthy like she always dreamt
