Jennifer Beattie

Playgroup Manager

I have been an Early Years Practitioner for over 12 years now with 6 years of management experience. In 2019 I graduated from the University of Dundee with a bachelor’s degree with distinction in Childhood studies I am very passionate about the early years and am already thinking about what to do next! I have been with Inverbrothock Playgroup since 2018 and I love our playgroup ethos, the family feel and support network it has created. When I am not working, I have a husband, 3 boys and a pug to keep me very busy and entertained.

I am an Early Years Practitioner and have worked at Inverbrothock Playgroup for over 20 years. I trained as a nursery nurse qualifying in 1987 and have continued to update my training and learning along the way. I love being outdoors and enjoy walking our dog Finn, running and hill walking in my free time. I can’t wait to meet you all and share this part of your learning journey with you.

I have been working at Inverbrothock playgroup since September 2019. I have been a fully qualified Early years practitioner since 2003. I have two daughters aged 10 and 5 who take up most of my time but I do enjoy going for walks and bike rides also doing tyga/konga class once a week.


Nikki Webster

Early Years Practitioner

I have been an Early Years Practitioner at Inverbrothock playgroup since 2020. I am excited to get to know all of our children and families. I have over ten years’ experience within the care sector, including carer and training as a nurse, however I had a huge passion for learning about the development of children which directed me to change careers. I am looking forward to developing my skills further to ensure I deliver the best possible care for the children to enhance their learning and experiences. I have three children ages nineteen, sixteen and nine and I love nothing more than spending time as a family.

I joined the Playgroup team in 2020 and I am currently working towards my PDA Level 8 in Childhood Practice through Dundee and Angus College.
My training will help me to develop my knowledge and skills to grow as a practitioner.  
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, I have a husband and son and they keep me very busy and we enjoy going on family outings.

I have been a part of the playgroup team since October 2014 but recently qualified as an Early Years Practitioner in June 2022. I also work at Inverbrothock Out of School Club. I have 3 children – twin girls aged 18 and a son aged 9. Lots of my time is taken up with my kids homework and clubs but I love going for long walks when I have free time.


Sarah Stronner

Suuport Worker

I joined the Playgroup team in December 2020. I completed my level 5 certificate in Early Education and Childcare at college and hope to become an Early Years Practitioner in the future. I think the best way to learn is on the job and to be more hands on with children's development, which in turn helps develop my skills and abilities. I have an 12 year old daughter and love spending time with family and friends. In my spare time I love being creative, baking and painting - anything I can be hands on with!


Beth Cullum

Early Years Practitioner

I started my Inverbrothock Playgroup journey in October 2021. I feel very honoured to part of this team. I am passionate about children's education and will continue to progress my knowledge and understanding throughout my career - I qualified as an Early Years Practitioner in April this year. I love being outdoors, travelling and animals, I compete in showjumping events with my horses.


Iona Beaton 

Support Worker

I have worked in the early education and childcare sector for 5 years now which has even taken me to Australia where I was an AuPair for a year. I've only recently joined the team here at Inverbrothock Playgroup, but I am enjoying each day with the amazing children and staff, who challenge my abilities and strengths daily. When out of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family doing activities such as paddle boarding and cycling.
