In September, 2-year-old Ranika Clifton died after being left in a hot van at Corinth Christian Daycare for more than 8 hours.
Investigators uncovered violations of state guidelines for transporting children. They also discovered that none of the staff had the required CPR training.
The day care remains open until the state's ruling on the appeal.
The driver of the van, Tim Day, was not charged.
