No nanny for Lucia Gibson. Bauer Griffin has photos of Oksana Grigorieva, Mel Gibson's ex, taking their daughter to an LA daycare center on Thursday.

Mel will appear in court on Friday for his domestic violence case and is expected to take a plea deal to avoid jail time. He admitted on tape that he hit Oksana while she was holding Lucia last year.

Here's one pic, see the rest at Bauer Griffin.
