Hanover Township Police arrived at “The Learning Experience” on Thursday afternoon and arrested Crystal Iacouzzi, 35, charging her with drug and marijuana possession and child endangerment. The Learning Experience is located at One Papermill Drive, Whippany.

Reports indicate the teacher dropped her purse, and kids started rummaging through it, only to find illegal pills inside.

“The Learning Experience’ is a national chain of franchised for-profit daycare centers, and according to New Jersey state records, it has had its share of licensing issues, including failure to perform background checks on its employees and falsifying its fire drill logs.

On Friday, a company spokesman called safety and security of their children their number one priority, adding, ‘due to the failure of upholding our strict rules and regulations, the staff member was immediately terminated.”

Editor’s Note: An arrest or the signing of a criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite this accusation, the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until he or she has been proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
