State Issues Emergency Suspension of Child Care Center in Wichita

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued an Emergency Order of Suspension against Creative Connections Learning Center, a licensed child care center operated by Creative Connections Inc., located at 11818 Central, 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 home from any potential threat to health or safety.

The order is subject to appeal to the Secretary.
