N.H. daycare operator charged with endangering welfare of child

A 60-year-old woman from Londonderry, New Hampshire, has been arrested and charged with endangering welfare of a child at her daycare center, police confirmed.

Lois Ann Mirbach, the owner of the Londonderry-based Adventures in Learning Child Care Center, was taken into custody after police found her drunk on the job on Tuesday this week.

Police said the suspect had passed out as well as left an oven on. She was also accused of operating the day care center without a license. She also admitted her daycare center wasn’t licensed.


Detective Chris Olson said when officers arrived, they found a running van behind the home without a driver. Mirbach was inside the home along with a three-year-old boy.

Confirming Mirbach’s arrest and the charge against her, Oslon said, “Officers suspected she was under the influence of alcohol and also emotionally upset. According to her, she had fallen asleep.”

The child in the day care was handed over to his father, who had arrived after getting a call from his wife that nobody could be reached the child care provider. Mirbach was not arrested on scene; she turned herself in on a warrant on Wednesday, March 15. She was charged with one count of endangering a child’s welfare.

Mirbach was released on a personal recognizance bail of $1,500. She is due back in court on April 19, 2016.
