I'm sure they will provide better care than the Tri-Valley YMCA. The the manager in charge of the YMCA hated running that center and claimed it closed due to budget reasons. We all know it was really a personal issue and they could never support staff long enough to keep them!

I think it is irresponsible to make annonomous accusations in a public forum. Both my children wwere enrolled at the YMCA program and had a wonderful experience. I still keep in contact with some of the staff that were there during the closure and they are great people! I wish the Weekly would edit some of the trashy gossip that appears on these comments.

The YMCA was a wonderful school that prepared my daughter for her school years. It was poorly run from the OFFICE, not the site. The children were loved, nurtured, and supported. The people who ran the books across the street, sadly, were sour and inept, and lead to the downfall of the school. A sad ending for a great school with fantastic teachers...

The office team is responsible for poor budgeting. The Tri-Valley YMCA should close its doors for good. The "team" consists of the big hair who needs to look into the community needs instead of dumping all the money into the guides and princess program.
