VICTORIAN childcare centres have been caught out breaching the law, we reveal the worst cases.

A FOUR-year-old who escaped from kindergarten by scaling a fence is among the latest in a string of breaches at Victorian childcare centres.

The Each Child Community Child and Family Centre in Ringwood East was fined $2500 after pleading guilty to a breach of the Children’s Services Act 1996.

Peter Ruzyla, acting CEO of EACH, the community services and healthcare group that runs the centre, said the case involved an autistic boy who climbed over a child-proof fence similar to those around pools while a staff member who was supposed to be supervising him comforted another child who had fallen over.

The runaway was returned to the centre by a member of the public.

The centre had since replaced the fence with a sheer steel version.

In West Wimmera Shire, Kaniva Kindergarten was ordered to take emergency action for breaches relating to the supervision and discipline of children and a lack of adequate programs to meet their developmental needs.

The two childcare providers are the only ones in Victoria to have attracted formal warnings or prosecution since May 25 last year.
