The video provided to WDTN.com by WFLA may be disturbing to some to view.

Deputies say the 15-month-old girl was dropped off at the Kids Stop and Play Daycare in Holiday, Florida early Saturday morning. The mother says she saw her child was injured when she picked her up that afternoon.

Police got their hands on the video and could see the little girl woke up crying when kicked. The child was kicked again in the buttocks when she fell back asleep about 10 minutes later.

The daycare worker, Linda Klem, 49, is now charged with child abuse.

Again, a warning that the video may be disturbing to view.
