Meet the team
Julia is also very passionate about creating learning opportunities for nannies, giving them access to resources and knowledge – not only to provide quality care as a caregiver but also to empower them and to increase their self confidence. She loves living in Zim with her family and friends, and is so excited to grow the Nanny ‘n Me community outside of South Africa.
She thinks that Nanny ’n Me’s structured weekly groups and hands-on learning approach is excellent as nannies are able to hone the application of the knowledge they gain. This builds confidence, and parents can have peace of mind that their nanny will be able to implement play-filled stimulation with their little one at home.
She loves walks on the farm where she lives, drinking tea with a friend, the Drakensberg mountains and sharing reading-aloud stories with any child who is willing to listen.
With Nanny ‘n Me, not only are we helping the children to grow, we are helping the nannies who are so essential to this process to benefit hugely thems
She completed her Sensory Integration certificate from Sheffield Hallam University, U.K. and has moved back to her hometown, George, with her husband and son. Megan is excited to own and manage the Nanny ‘n Me George and Mossel Bay branch.
While working in private practice, mostly with a pediatric caseload, she also had the privilege of being a group facilitator for Nanny ‘n Me in the Midrand area and surrounds in 2023. After this she decided to open a franchise in the West Rand to bring Nanny ‘n Me even closer to home.
Lezani has always had a great love and passion for working with children and feels truly blessed to live out her passion every day. She is excited about the opportunity Nanny ‘n Me gives her to work with parents and nannies to share her passion for childhood development and playing with a purpose.
She enjoys spending time with my family outdoors and enjoys being creative in the kitchen. As an avid reader she believes that books nourish your soul. She is very grateful for having a strong, supportive family who are her strength and inspiration.
She is excited to be bringing Nanny ‘n Me to Johannesburg South and to help and grow the community and enrich and inspire families and nannies. The Nanny ‘n Me program will be a good addition to her practice to help mums find work/life balance and teach and grow nannies to be upskilled and resourceful.
She completed her BSc in Occupational Therapy at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2016 and is currently completing her Master’s degree at the same institution. Her favourite pastime activities include reading, puzzles, cooking and exercising. Tebogo volunteered at the Wits Centre for Deaf Studies from 2012 until 2020 where she would conduct home visits and support families in navigating through the challenges and blessings of raising a child who is hard of hearing. This solidified her love for Early Intervention and family support as it brought fulfilment seeing parents confidently grow in the understanding of childhood development and the importance of interaction irrespective of communication challenges.
Having learned about Nanny n Me rekindled this love and passion and she looks forward to being part of this wonderful community that empowers both nannies and parents in supporting the bundle of joy that graced this world as they navigate their first three important years of life!
When blessed with two bubbly boys, it became her heart’s desire and passion to build a firm foundation for them in their early years. Between 2010 and 2017 she decided to grow her knowledge and skills through owning and running a toddler movement and stimulation programme which was primarily based on sensory motor experiences and active play. During this time it became even more apparent to her that the child’s early years are the foundation for their future development as well as the incredible benefit of early intervention and occupational therapy during these years.
In January 2017 her dream was realised when she opened a playschool for 2-4 year olds, which has grown from 12 children in 2017 to 48 precious little ones currently. She was finally able to use her in-depth knowledge, insight, and experience to make a difference in the lives of children and their parents. With Nanny ‘n Me she is hoping to give back to the local community and inspire the nannies to be proud of their contribution to the little ones in our society!
