A Grove daycare, closed by the Department of Human Services after they said workers were giving sleep aids to children at nap time, is set to reopen Tuesday.

According to the Grove Sun, Wee Little Lambs will be reopened by the owner's granddaughter, a licensed daycare operator, pending further court hearings.

Earlier in the month DHS closed the daycare after complaints of sleep aids being given to children. One family pulled their children out of the facility.

Many, however, defended the daycare.

Winston Connor, the attorney for Wee Little Lambs called the closing a witch hunt and said, "We don't believe it. It's just not true. I've known this family for a long time. These are really good people and you cannot imagine how many phone calls we are getting with people who are just absolutely appalled that this witch hunt is, and has occurred."

Even with the daycare reopening the owner is not allowed on site.
