PGT Custom Windows + Doors Breaks Ground for Child Care Center

April 24, 2017

N. Venice, FL – PGT® Custom Windows + Doors, a subsidiary of PGT Innovations, (NYSE: PGTI), commenced construction of an onsite child care facility during an official groundbreaking ceremony held on Friday, April 21. To be operated by the Sky Family YMCA, the PGT Child Care Center will offer affordable, convenient child care services to PGT families with young children, as well as other parents who work in the Triple Diamond Commerce Park in North Venice, FL.

The 8,000-plus-square-foot facility will cost approximately $1.8 million, including the land purchase, and is slated for completion and opening in the first quarter of 2018. The architect on the project is Hall Architects. Willis A. Smith Construction is the general contractor.

The child care center will have the capacity to accommodate approximately 100 children aged six weeks to five years old. In keeping with child care programs operated by the YMCA, the PGT Child Care Center will be fully licensed and accredited, and staffed by professionals trained by the YMCA. The center will offer curriculum-based programs, healthy meals and an outdoor playground. To accommodate parents working various shifts, it will be open six days a week from 4:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., with flexible pick-up and drop-off policies.

“The cost of child care as a percent of living expenses has gone up not only locally, but nationwide—therefore, we are excited to offer our team members affordable, onsite child care. We believe the convenience and affordability will set PGT apart as an employer of choice,” said Debbie LaPinska, Vice President of Human Resources. “We hope our program and facility will become a model for employers throughout our region.”
