I heard that they have a very low staff retention due to poor management. Kimiko Leong never had issues with her staffing. Check the track record of staff...they constantly oil the revolving doors at Tri-Valley!

This would be the same woman that single-handedly brought down the YMCA Child Care Center and had more than 8 staff quiting within a few months. Stong family...Strong community....I think not.

they have built what they want. they dont even live in the community to know its needs.

the middle school programs are worse than babysitting and the staff is very "open" to abuse their powers.
