VICENZA, Italy -- The Child Development Center and School Age Center programs in Building 703 Villaggio will undergo a flooring renovation project in July.

The project includes classrooms and corridors on the CDC side and in the main lobby. The restoration will address a critical safety issue that has been a concern in the facility.

CYS would like community members to know they have been working diligently with the contractor to ensure that interruptions to business operations are kept at a minimum. Due to the nature of the renovation, temporary changes to daily business operations and locations of services will take place July 2-13.

The following courses of action will be implemented:
--CDC will only offer full-time child care at Building 398 on Caserma Ederle. Hours of operation will be 5:45 a.m.-6:15 p.m. and remain consistent in the temporary location.

--Kindergarten children will be placed in a classroom in the SAC program. Patrons have the option to not use services during this timeframe. Billing will be suspended and families will not be required to use vacation credits.

--Building 398: CDC will temporarily cease part day and hourly care in order to accommodate Building 703 programs. Billing will be suspended and families will not be required to use vacation credits.

--Building 703: SAC will use an alternate point of entrance/exit during the renovation. Patrons will enter through the side of the building adjacent to Vicenza Elementary School.

--Upon completion of the lobby and corridors, classrooms in the CDC will reopen as those rooms are completed. The CDC/SAC staff anticipates that normal business operations will resume July 16 for all programs affected. Any changes to the aforementioned timeline will be communicated to patrons
immediately.
