John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that KinderCare Education LLC (“KinderCare”) of Portland, Oregon, has entered into a settlement agreement with the government to resolve allegations that KinderCare’s child care programs and other services were not accessible to children with Type 1 diabetes who are dependent on insulin injections, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”).
Compliance Review and Enforcement. The United States may review KinderCare’s compliance with this Agreement or title III of the ADA at any time. If the United States believes that this Agreement or any portion of it has been violated, it will raise its concerns with KinderCare and the parties will attempt to resolve the concerns in good faith. If the parties are unable to reach a satisfactory resolution of the issue(s) raised within thirty (30) days of the date that the United States provides notice to KinderCare, the United States may institute a civil action against KinderCare in the appropriate United States District Court to enforce this Agreement or title III of the ADA. https://www.youtube.com/embed/eeCahRCgOfI
