Kansas daycare closed after inspectors find several hazardous items

Violations include elding equipment and weapons

PLEASANTON, Kan. - State officials issued an emergency suspension of a daycare in Pleasanton, Kan. after inspectors ran across items including guns, medication and an electric saw in the facility.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment shut down Little Cubs Daycare in Pleasanton, which hosted four children.

Officials made multiple visits to the daycare in March and April after receiving reports of issues. but inspectors found no issues and granted the business a license at the beginning of May.

A visit in late June, however, found many violations, including dangerous items such as several guns, ammunition, a knife, an electric saw, tools, a lighter, welding equipment and a gas can all available to children.

Kansas law allows for the KDHE to issue a emergency suspension order to prtect children from any potential threat to health or safety. The operators can appeal the order.
