The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued an Emergency Order of Suspension against Christina’s Home Day Care Home, a licensed day care home operated by Christina Dick located at 500 Stoneridge, Valley Center.

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.
