COBB COUNTY, Ga. – A judge has issued an emergency closure for a Cobb County daycare center.
Administrative Law Judge Kimberly W. Schroer announced Wednesday morning the decision regarding Bright Achievers Pre-K Center, which is located in Austell.
Dr. Melinda Hamilton, the daycare's owner, fought in court to keep her business open after a 2-year-old was allegedly left in a hot van for more than five hours.
The daycare center will be closed for up to 21 days, effective immediately, according to the order. Several consultants were sent to Bright Achievers to call parents and close the business.
The state must now decide whether it will revoke or limit the daycare's license.
