Jennifer Beattie

Playgroup Manager

I have been an Early Years Practitioner for over 12 years now with almost 5 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 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 am a fully qualified Early years practitioner since 2003. I have two daughters aged 8 and 3 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 am newly qualified Early Years Practitioner therefore new to Inverbrothock playgroup. I am excited to get to know all the staff, children and families alike. 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 seventeen, fifteen and seven and I love nothing more than spending time as a family.

Lisa Dunbar

Support Worker

I qualified in 2010 and have been working as a support worker at playgroup since October 2014. I am currently working towards an SVQ in social services (children and young people) level 7. I also work at Inverbrothock Out of School Club. I have 3 children – twin girls aged 16 and a son aged 7. 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 am the newest member to the team at Inverbrothock Playgroup joining in December 2020. I am currently working towards 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 11 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!

I love being outdoors, travelling and animals, I compete in showjumping events with my horses.
