About Me

My name is Federica Barbato and I am an OFSTED registered childminder with child-minding agency and a gold member of Childcare.co.uk. I am open full time from 8.00 am to 5.30 pm Monday to Friday. My setting is based in a flat on the ground floor. I look after children aged 6 months to 5+ years old. My setting has been set up to encourage adventure, creativity and diversity as well as including elements of my Italian background. My setting also offers various activity and education experiences in accordance with EYFS. This will include children building skills around math’s, literacy, arts and crafts and role play.
I can provide health snacks and meals upon request. My passion is teaching children how to eat heathier and how to prepare a variety of nutritional dishes. Involving children in cooking activities and sharing knowledge about the importance of eating heathier is the key to a child’s development and growth.

I love taking children out for outdoor activities and I believe that children can learn from the outside world rather than being indoors. Daily trips to parks are guaranteed as well as many other planned trips. My aim is helping the children to build up their confidence through outdoor activities.

My setting incorporates activities based on the Montessori philosophy. It is based on encouraging self-confidence and independence through activities that involve problem solving while developing social and intellectual growth. Activities I will be carrying out are based on using different tools such as using treading toys, painting and a variety of sensory activities.

My top priority within my setting I to ensure diversity. This will involves celebrating various beautiful cultures through different activities.

My Experience

I have 5 years’ experience as a nursery practitioner in various nursery’s based in London. I have worked with different ages groups ranging from 6 months old to 5 years. I greatest experience has been the upbringing of my daughter who is 1 year old. I have experience with babies and children with English as a second languages as I am bilingual speaking fluent Italian as well as having a good level of English.

Federica was amazing when she looked after our daughter whilst our regular childminder was away on holiday. Federica ensured our daughter was comfortable and entertained from the moment we met her! She had many creative activities set up already and I could see my daughter was very happy! Federica has made her home very child friendly and welcoming and we are just sad we do not live closer to use Federica more!

As a parent I was concerned regarding the transition period with my little boy when I had to go back at work.I am so please that I had decided to send him to federica as he is always excited to go back. She sets up lovely activities and takes my boy regularly to the park. He is always excited and happy when I drop him off. He also enjoys learning new words in Italian. I would high recommend :)
