A Perth child care provider, has been recently fined $15,000 after a five-year-old girl was left alone in a locked bus for up to 15 minutes.

A school parent saw the girl locked in the bus and unsuccessfully tried to open the doors before an educator opened the doors.

The WA Department of Communities said the bus had been used to transport children from some pre-primary and kindergarten sites.

The State Administrative Tribunal also ordered the Childcare provider to pay $2000 in costs.

The incident occurred in May 2019.
