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
Design.

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.

I aim to provide a wide range of opportunities in the form of interactive, fun and
challenging activities to enable children of all backgrounds and abilities to develop and
learn through play in a caring, supportive and happy environment.

 

I am guided in my routines and policies by the Early Years Foundation Stage framework
and am registered and inspected by OFSTED.

I recognise the importance of parental involvement in a child's early years and look
forward to working together as a team to meet your child(ren)'s full potential.

My objectives for the children include the following key points:

To develop the social skills necessary to help build friendships

To learn to work in harmony alongside their peers

To develop their social skills, mental and physical skills and knowledge of the world
around them to help prepare for the transition to school and the life challenges ahead

Each child will be treated as an individual and their needs addressed from a holistic
perspective

I aim to offer a balanced curriculum, in a home environment of stimulating and
constructive play and activities to develop creativity and imagination.

 

Early Years Foundation Stage

As a registered childminder, it is a legal requirement that I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework. This covers the stage of children's development from birth to the end of their first (Reception) year in school. The EYFS is not a formal curriculum but a play based approach to care and education.

Play underpins all development and learning for young children and the importance of learning through play is woven into the Framework of the EYFS. Commitment 4 1 states "In their play children learn at their highest level".

The main aim of the EYFS is to support each child, regardless of their background, to achieve the five "Every Child Matters" outcomes of staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution, and achieving economic well-being" (EYFS 2008). Meeting the needs of all children lies at the heart of the EYFS. It won't feel like learning - most children just see it as fun and play.

There are seven areas of learning which are all important and inter-connected. There are three prime areas which are considered critical for a child's learning and healthy development. In addition, there are four specific areas of learning which build on the prime areas:-

Prime Areas

  1. Communication and Language
    Listening and attention
    Understanding speaking

  2. Physical Development
    Moving and handling
    Health and self-care

  3. Personal, Social & Emotional Development
    Self-confidence and self-awareness
    Managing feelings and behavior Making friendships

Specific Areas

  1. Literacy
    Reading
    Writing

  2. Mathematics
    Numbers
    Shape, space and measures

  3. Expressive Arts & Design
    Exploring and using media and materials
    Being imaginative

  4. Understanding the World
    People and communities
    The World Technology

The Early Learning Goals set out what most children are expected to achieve by the end of the Reception.
