The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services has issued an emergency order closing Kelli’s Childcare, operated by Kelli Eppenbach. Under the order, Eppenbach is prohibited from caring for any children other than her own.
Eppenbach may request a hearing within 15 days of receiving the emergency order. The hearing will be held within 10 days of the request, unless a continuance is granted.
DHHS says it has notified parents of the children enrolled in this child care program of the situation.
An emergency order is issued whenever DHHS finds that an emergency exists requiring immediate action to protect the physical well-being and safety of a child in a child care program.
