A sign posted Monday at a day care shut down by the Department of Children and Families notified parents to transfer their children to another location called Small Blessings child care.
DCF suspended the license of Tiny Blessings child care, off Blanding Boulevard, and shut it down after its owner, Lawanda Jackson, pleaded no contest to domestic battery, a disqualifying offense for someone working in a child care facility.
DCF said keeping the day care open could jeopardize the children's safety.
Channel 4 has learned that owner of Small Blessings is Jackson's brother, Raymond Cooper.
DCF spokesman John Harrell said Jackson has no involvement with her brother's business, but DCF is keeping a close eye on its operations.
