State Issues Emergency Suspension of Day Care Home in Wichita

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued an Emergency Order of Suspension against Queens Home Day Care Home, a registered day care home operated by KyQueena L. Barnes, located at 1002 Eastmoor in Wichita.

State law allows the Secretary of KDHE to issue such an order when, in the opinion of the Secretary, the order is necessary to protect children in the facility from any potential threat to health or safety.

The order is subject to appeal to the Secretary.
