Infant & Baby Room (B120)
Caregivers: Ms. Acosta & Ms. Hu
Carmen Acosta has been caring for our infants for over 13 years. While on staff at St. Luke’s, she has earned her Childhood Development Associate. Ms. Acosta works to create an atmosphere where there is age appropriate play and activities for babies from as young as 2 months through 12 months old. Many of the children she held as infants still come to get hugs. She is gentle and caring and has extensive experience with babies as young as 2 months old.
Yan Hu is a recent graduate of Queens College in New York City where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education. She is quick to lend a hand as the babies get settled in the room and engages the babies one on one. Ms. Hu has introduced creative activities into the classroom that engage all of the babies’ senses. She has a special place in her heart for our Kingdom Babies. Ms. Hu’s gentle, loving nature makes her a magnet for our babies and parents.
