Daycare workers allegedly dosed toddlers to get them to nap — should parents be worried?

Three daycare workers were arrested for allegedly giving kids gummy bears laced with a sleep aid after police were called to the Kiddie Junction Daycare in Chicago for a “suspicious incident.”

On Friday, after police were called to the Kiddie Junction Daycare near Chicago for a “suspicious incident,” the teachers admitted feeding the candy to some members of their class, consisting of 2-year-old children, according to local news station Chicago 5.

Kristen Lauletta, 32, Jessica Heyse, 19, and Ashley Helfenbein, 25, are charged with two counts of endangering the life or health of a child and two counts of battery, among other potential charges. The teachers are currently out on bail but will appear in court on April 4.
