The man accused of molesting a four-year-old girl at his wife's dayhome says it never happened.

Christopher Coleborne, 41, testified in his own defence on Friday and told the judge the child never touched his penis, as she testified on Thursday.

The girl told a police detective Colborne gave her a toy after he molested her and told her not to tell his wife.

A video of the girl's interview with police was played in court on Thursday.

"Sometimes when he's coming in the room and .. he lets me touch his private parts," said the child.

Colborne is charged with invitation to sexual touching with a child under 16 and sexual interference.

The girl said in her interview that Colborne came into the room where she was napping and had her touch him before leaving.

"Don't tell Kim," the girl said Colborne told her after the touching.

The incident was reported to police in March and is alleged to have taken place at the Coventry Hills dayhome sometime between September 2014 and February 2015.

As part of his release conditions, Colborne can not live in his home because he is not allowed to be in the presence of anyone under the age of 16 — including his own four-year-old child.

At the time of his arrest, police said Colborne's wife, Kim was not co-operating with investigators.

The trial is supposed to wrap up on Friday.
