Interesting Day-Care Fee Case
From down the road from me comes this story:
After a 3-year-old child with Down syndrome walked away from Little Rainbows of Leslie in March, the day-care center decided to charge her parents an additional $10.68 an hour so it could provide one-on-one staffing for the child, according to a lawsuit.
The lawsuit, filed last week by Tracy and Julie Powers of Stockbridge, says the day-care center’s response to the incident discriminates against the family and violates the federal Americans with Disabilities Act.
The day-care center imposed one-on-one staffing even though the parents didn’t believe it was necessary, the lawsuit says. The child no longer attends Little Rainbows.
The article includes a response from the day care center.
