I am writing to recommend Vovo's Daycare on the North Berkeley/Albany border. Both of my daughters started at Vovo's when they were three months old, and the oldest is now off to preschool. Alia (''Vovo''), her family, and her assistant Desi are some of the warmest people you will ever meet. Alia has cared for many babies and children over the years (including five of her own, now grown) so she knows what she's doing. She and Desi are generous with hugs and attention, provide healthy foods (mostly lentils, beans, rice, vegetables, and lots of fruit -- with the occasional treat) and maintain an amazingly clean, sane environment in the house. I believe right now (Sept. 2009) Vovo's has space for a child over two years old, either part-time or full-time (there is some minimum amount of hours, so give Alia a call). -Joanne

She has a small group of children (mostly infants and toddlers) that she regularly takes care of, and has room for 1-2 more children.
