Maite is from Málaga, South of Spain and is the Founder of Spanishnanny Agency. She has over 11 years of experience as a Qualified Nursery Nurse and as a professional nanny, both is Spain and the U.K. However it was twenty-three years ago that she began her journey down a path that sparked her passion for childcare and lead her to opening her own business.

Maite first began working with families at the age of twenty, working as a babysitter in the local neighbourhood. This experience led her to become a Nursery Nurse further compounding her commitment and demonstrating her strength as a caregiver.

Maite went on to become a nanny for high profile families in London where she became adept at engaging with families and identifying their specific needs. It was in 2015 that Maite conceived the concept for Spanishnanny. Launching London’s first nanny agency to specialise in delivering Spanish speaking nanny’s for families seeking both a nurturing and educational environment for their children.

Spanishnanny aims to balance children’s needs by providing not only an experienced and caring nanny but also one who can assist their development and invest in their future.

Spanishnanny is a combination of Maite’s years of knowledge, skills and experience with her passion for childcare and appreciation of the rich Spanish culture. As an experienced childcare professional and also a mother, Maite understands the importance of having a well experienced, trust worthy and caring nanny. This is why she personally interviews all prospective candidates to ensure families can have peace of mind when hiring a nanny. You can’t beat the personal customer service and originality of a small family business.

“Supporting my families was always my priority and along the way I have met such a wonderful people to watch their children develop and become bilingual.
This helped me to understand the potential in a specialised Spanish speaking agency. I’ve taken what I’ve learned from my experience and turned my passion into a thriving business. It’s been an absolute dream come true and I want to share my pride in our great community and offer our families’ the opportunity to invest in their children lifetime”.
