HOLIDAY, Florida -- It's the nightmare of any parent who takes their kids to daycare. Sheriff Chris Nocco  of the Pasco County Police Department calls this, "...One of those cases that is heartbreaking for parents to watch."

A day care worker was arrested after a security camera inside the "Kids Stop N Play Day Care Center" in Holiday, Florida, caught the alleged abuse on camera.

Sheriff Nocco says the video shows Linda Klem, 49, kicking a 15-month old girl several times, in order to wake her up for a nap. The little girl's mom complained after finding bruises on her daughter.

That's a lesson to parents because both the owner of the daycare, and Klem's co-workers say they wouldn't have expected this from Klem, who had worked at the day care for four years.

So parents, remember to be vigilant and be the voice for your child when they can't speak for themselves.
