Ms Esther and Ms. Annette are our infant room caregivers. Both of them have been in childcare for over 15 years. Ms. Esther has been in the infant room at Family of Christ since 2002 and Ms. Annette since 2006. All of our caregivers meet the Childcare Licensing Training requirements as well as CPR/First Aid. The infants in our program will experience developmentally appropriate activities all while receiving lots of love and care.  Our infant room teachers have been blessed and called from God to work with these little miracles of life and they take this very seriously. They make a great team and work alongside the parents to ensure your child receives the best possible care while away from home.
