Why not "she is not a child"

'Ce' does not refer to a specific person or thing. It usually translates to 'that.' If you want to say she is not a child you would say: Elle n'est pas un enfant.

A way for me to remember is that "enfant" is similar to "infant".

Can someone please explain why it's "Ce n'est pas un enfant" and not "Ce n'est pas d'enfant"?

Enfant means child... In my oppinion this is wrong. Garçon is boy.

I attempted to use infant and it was rejected. Is there another word that clarifies infant from child? Child=enfant, infant=?

Surely " un enfant" translates as "a child" and not one child
