A woman accused of murdering an 18-month-old girl who disappeared in 2001 has pleaded not guilty in the NSW Supreme Court.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at court on Friday accused of killing the toddler who disappeared from her home in Scone more than 15 years ago.

The girl was last seen in 2001 but wasn't reported missing until 2004.

The 43-year-old woman was arrested by police at Evans Head on the NSW far north coast earlier this year and charged with murder.

The girl's body has never been found.

Justice Peter Johnson scheduled the eight-week trial to begin next July in Newcastle.
