The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued an Emergency Order of Suspension against Munchkin Manor Day Care Home, a licensed family day care home operated by Kimberly R. Riffel located at 2154 Moon Road, Enterprise.

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.
