Our Staff


Dedicated to Spanish immersion.



Aydé Manzano de York



I was born in Mexico city. I came to Oregon as an exchange student who wanted to learn English. I fell in love and married an Oregonian in 1970.


I created Amiguitos! Preschool in the year 2000 with one goal in mind: to provide my grandchildren with the opportunity to be immersed in the Spanish language and culture. Since then many families have joined our program to give their children the same gift I gave my grandchildren. It has been very rewarding to help children discover the joy of bilingualism. I look forward to serving your family.
