State Issues Emergency Suspension of Day Care Home in Emporia

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued an Emergency Order of Suspension against Love Laughter and Learning, a licensed day care home operated by Tonya Rangel located at 128 S. Constitution Street.

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.
