BATON ROUGE - An Ascension Parish daycare will have to close its doors following a hearing Tuesday morning.

Alphabet Soup Learning Center will remain closed until a December 13 hearing. The daycare filed a motion to stay, which would have allowed the center to stay open during the appeal process; however, the judge denied that motion.

"Parents literally found out this morning they can't come back here tomorrow," said employee Alyssa Goodrich. Until its closure, the daycare looked after about 70 children.

Starting Tuesday, daycare officials will start helping parents find new facilities for their children.  

The closures stem from a previous ruling where a judge upheld the Louisiana Department of Education's decision to pull the license. The state department said there were 74 deficiencies over a two-year period. The state said one of the most egregious complaints, was over-medicating a child.
