PA-2In order for a child day care center to become fully licensed in the State of NJ by the Department of Children and Families, a Preliminary Assessment, conducted in accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:26E and prepared/reviewed by an LSRP, is required. The Preliminary Assessment includes a site inspection and a thorough review of available historic documentation and former uses of the site in order to identify any potential areas of environmental concern that may be present.


In addition, the NJ legislature has authorized reimbursement of up to $1,500 towards the cost of completing Preliminary Assessment for licensed child care facilities; BES, with the assistance of the child care facility, will prepare the necessary application for cost reimbursement through the Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation Fund (HDSRF) for the facility. BES has conducted numerous PA inspections for child care facilities, resulting in No Further Action (NFA) designations by the State or, more recently, been issued a Response Action Outcome (RAO) from our LSRP, since this requirement has been enacted.
