Our babies’ house, more commonly referred to as the Kinder home, has space for up to 60 children who range in age from infants to 6 years old. The children live in a spacious dormitory that is part of the old hacienda. There is a large kitchen, living room, dorm room, indoor play area, private quarters for the caretakers, and their very own outdoor play area with playground equipment and a small pool where the little ones learn to swim. The Kinder section is run by Cristina Lopez. Cristina was a pequeña and has been working with NPH as director of Kinder for 20 years now. She never tires and cares for the children as if they were her own. Many children call her mom, since she is the only "mother" they have ever known.
