Existing child care centers that have already fulfilled environmental requirements and obtained one of the approval letters listed below can renew by filling out Department of Children and Families' (DCF) Office of Licensing Attestation Form.
- A Child Care Facility Approval (CCFA) letter issued by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP)
- A No Further Action letter that must be issued by NJDEP's Child Care/Educational Facility Unit
- A Child Care Response Action Outcome issued by a Licensed Site Remediation Professional
In addition, if the child care center is not connected to a community water system, a drinking water certification issued by NJDEP's Bureau of Water System Engineering dated within 90 days of the licensing application must accompany Department of Children and Families' Attestation Form.
Please contact DCF for further guidance at 1-877-667-9845.
Please note: If site conditions have changed, the child care center owner/operator may need to hire a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) to evaluate the property and issue a Response Action Outcome (RAO). For more information, please visit How to obtain an RAO.
