Kansas suspends day care license in Colby

July 13, 2018

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says it has issued an emergency suspension order against a licensed day care home in Colby.

The order Friday says the agency received information related to two separate incidents occurring on June 28 and July 12 at the Mighty Mites and Little Tikes home. The order does not specify the nature of those incidents.

But day care operator Michelle Lippelmann says one of the incidents involved an altercation between her daughter and ex-boyfriend in her front yard. The other involved a since-fired employee and volunteer who had sent bare-chested pictures of themselves sent to a man when Lippelmann was not in the home.

She says none of the 12 children in her care were in danger and she plans to appeal.
