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.
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!
