The Department of Health and Environment has issued an emergency suspension of a Salina day care center's license, after inspectors found workers grabbing children and force feeding them.

The emergency order of suspension was issued today for Sharing and Caring at 663 South 9th.

In a report filed today, investigators from KDHE and Social and Rehabilitation Services conducted a joint survey of the center. The survey found;

  • Corporal punishment, including grabbing and yanking children's arms and pulling them roughly from seated positions;

  • A lead staff member and director force feeding children by holding their mouths open and pouring milk down their throats;

  • A lead staff member and director using threats to make the children eat.

    The day care operator has a right to request a hearing on the license suspension.
