1.  No child should be allowed to leave the centre with any person, unless the person:Regulations 2008 cover

  • is a parent/has the role of providing day-to-day care for the child; or
  • is authorised in writing to take the child by a person who has the role of providing day-to-day care for the child.

(Note that the early childhood education regulations do not specify the legal age for a sibling or other authorised person to collect a child.  Normally an early childhood centre would not release a child to a sibling under the age of 14 years unless the child's parent was present / within sight).
