About Me

My name is Audrey Tomassi and I have been a childminder for 17 years and enjoy the job so much.

My husband is a taxi driver and owns his own taxi.


I have recently had my inspection and was graded a 5 and with no recommendations going forward.

At the moment I have I have very limited space but please contact me to see what I have available.

I have 3 boys my eldest son Michael 23 has just graduated from Queen Margaret University in Podiatry my middle son Daniel 21 works on the railway and my youngest son Paul is in 5th year at Holyrood high school.

I have recently got a cat very child friendly his name is Tam.

I take the children out to weekly playgroups on a Tuesday and a Thursday and softplay centres and twice a year we go to East Links Park, i have a large walled garden very safe full of toys so on the nice summer days we will spend them in the garden just recently i have had astro turf put down in the garden so children can play away without getting dirty clothes and also have had a newly built wooden playhouse for the children with toy kitchen bean bags reading and dressing up corner.

The children can play happily inside the house and i also have an indoor play room with toys.

I like to meet children once or twice before I start with them and if parents and there child are happy with my service we can then decide to discuss contracts and other paperwork.

I will ask parents to provide a packed lunch for there child but I always have snacks here if you should run out of anything and some spare clothes in case of accidents and nappies for the younger children.

My Experience

I qualified as a hairdresser not long after leaving school and started working for myself for a number of years, then went onto work in retail and finished up working in Marks and spencer.

I then went onto to work in an after school club for 5 years and decided then to become a registered childminder I have been a Registered Childminder since 2006.

The children that i have looked after have mostly been through word of mouth i have never needed to advertise on a large scale, mostly teachers children and nursery teachers children. I am now registered with the care inspectorate.

Audrey looks after my little girl and what a fabulous job she does. She is very polite and proffesional. Play room full of toys and the back garden is fab big trampoline and the children have plenty of toys to choose from!! I get a full breakdown of how my daughter has been throughout the day when i collect her and get wee pics of her sent to me which i think is a lovely touch!! My daughter can be clingy to me and dad and can get upset in the morning,but Audrey distracts and re assures her and within 5 mins daughter is settled. Audrey gives us a wee message/picture to let us know shes Settled! I would highly reccommend Audrey! Arrange to meet her and see for yourself!!

Audrey is an amazing lady (and childminder). Has been great with our little boy, helped him with his independence so much! She has teached and helped shape him into the little person he is becoming. She helped us out last minute and has been an angel eversince! Our little boy always looks foward to going to hers and is always happy when we pick him up. Very reliable and approachable! Thank you so much for all your hardwork and patience! Special lady 👍

Mum and daughter met Audrey for the first time today, the connection between my 1yr and Audrey was magical. Seemed as if we knew each other for ages.. lovely atmosphere for kids and clean environment. Would definitely recommend Audrey.

Audrey has been looking after my daughter for nearly a year when my baby was 11 months and she is been wonderful all this time. They connected very soon and they adore each other and is reflected every day when me and my partner drop her off every day because she is so happy going to Audrey's house, and also when I pick her up later in the afternoon she doesn't want to leave either.. Also, I've got feedback everyday about how my daughter is been eating, behaving, filling nappies or many other unexpected situations or needs which is really good too. I would really recommender her to everyone because Audrey is a very happy, young and responsable woman and I have no more than nice words to say about her.

As a parent, you want full assurance that the Childminder you work with has the best interests and environment for your child to thrive. Audrey was recommended to us and we've been with her over a year. I can't recommend her enough, full of love, energy and enthusiasm. There's a genuine care and passion for the kids, like one big extended family. Audrey is disciplined and built a culture of kindness and acceptance amongst her 'crew' that we like. This is a lady that will always go the extra mile to keep the kids engaged and her new garden transformation testament to that. Her service is diligent and timely, we know we can fully rely on her (which is important as working parents). So if you've read this, go meet her, she's a bundle of energy and you'll wonder how you ever lived without her.
