My name is Patricia Yepes, I live in Chelsea, in front of Redcliffe Square and close to Bousfield primary school.
I have over 14 years’ experience teaching and caring for children, under the name of TatyFun. My slogan is "PROTECT, NURTURE AND EDUCATE IS MY COMMITMENT" I live with my husband and my fifteen years old son and I speak Spanish, English and basic Italian.
I work and care for small groups of children; therefore, allowing me to offer individual care, consider the particular requirements of a specific child. I work in close partnership with parents. I apply the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and Jolly Phonics, method for teaching the letters sound in a way that is fun and multi-sensory. Children learn how to use the letters sounds to read and write words. I provide individual plan and Progress Check for Babies and Toddlers, focusing on the areas of learning: Personal, social and emotional development, Physical development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive arts and
I have a well-structured routine with timetable. A very warm and caring environment for all children. I provide a good variety of fresh food with nutritious balance.
I am currently attending a NHS program through the Dietician and Public Health to provide Healthy Eating Awards - Relationship to Early Years Foundation.
I am a member of the NCMA (National Childminder Association), NAS (The National Autistic Society) and have a Pediatric First Aid Certificate.
I love to include all parents in occasional events such as Christmas party, summer picnic, Easter and celebrate cultural and religious festivals.
Periodically we visit the library, parks and museums and attend art and craft workshops with the children where they can have access to exciting and colorful materials. I also create scrapbooks of the children's activities with pictures in full color.
TatyFun is proud to be an equal opportunities learning environment.
