Alysha Marie Lewis, 26, is facing assault charges after admitting to striking a toddler with her knee.
The incident occurred in April while Lewis was employed at HIS Ark Christian Child Development Center.
When the incident was first reported to authorities, Lewis blamed another child. She then changed her story several times before admitting to kneeing the child which resulted in a deep laceration from the top of the child's forehead, through his eye, and down to his cheekbone.
Lewis told the authorities "she was not herself" during this incident.
Alysha Marie Lewis, 26, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of abuse or cruelty to a minor.
