VENICE, Fla. – PGT Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: PGTI), the nation’s leading manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, recently purchased a 2.5-acre lot in North Venice to build an 8,109-square-foot daycare facility.
Located at 101 Triple Diamond Blvd., the PGT-owned facility will be operated by the Venice branch of the SKY Family YMCA, a licensed Voluntary Pre- Kindergarten (VPK) provider. The new daycare will be open 24 hours a day, six days a week and will have the capacity to accommodate 150 children.
“In keeping with our commitment to our core values, including family and community, PGT is building a daycare to support our employees but to also serve the other businesses located within the Triple Diamond Planned Industrial Development,” said Debbie LaPinska, vice president of human resources at PGT. “Our main priority is to provide our team members with an affordable and nearby daycare option that will offer a safe, reliable and consistent environment for their children.”
Construction on the $1.9-million project, which includes the land acquisition, is slated to begin in summer 2016. The building’s projected opening date is scheduled for the first half of 2017. The daycare will include multi-functional classrooms, sleeping environments and an outdoor playground.
“The daycare will feature curriculum-based programs and promote a healthy, active lifestyle for children with healthy meals provided by the Venice YMCA,” said LaPinska.
