Daycare owner appeals closure

The owner of a San Jose daycare, where a toddler died in May, has appealed her case with the state.

The daycare was in a two story house on Claremont Avenue.

A 2-year-old boy was strangled May 21, when a cord on his hooded sweatshirt got caught on a playground slide.

The California Department of Social Services shut down the center in June and suspended the owner's license.

Now, the owner has appealed to reverse the decision, claiming the state investigation was flawed.

A hearing is set for next week.
