CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A former daycare worker accused of beating a toddler plead not guilty in court Tuesday.

Melissa Tate worked at the Cedar Early Learning center on Cedar Avenue. She was indicted earlier this month on endangering children charges.

Cleveland Police say she beat a 2-year-old boy with a wooden back scratcher and the attack was caught on tape.

Tate was given a $10,000 bond. She'll be back in court Jan. 5, 2016.
