Lynn Rowe, former owner of Lynn’s Learning Center near 112th Street and West Center Road, was arrested shortly after a video on the incident surfaced.
She was charged with one count of felony child abuse in April and was forced to surrender her day-care license after the state of Nebraska issued an emergency order to shut down her business.

A video, taken by another daycare worker on March 28, showed Rowe appearing to hit, punch and shake a child. The video was given to the child's parents and a child protective services report was filed.
Rowe initially pleaded not guilty. Her change of plea to no contest is treated as a guilty plea by the judge.
Rowe faces a maximum of three years in prison. Her sentencing has been scheduled for Jan. 23.
