A Perth childcare centre has been fined after three toddlers sustained severe burns to their feet during a fire drill on a hot day last summer.

Several children, aged between 18 and 36 months, weren't wearing shoes or socks when the drill took place at Nido Early School QV1 last December, as the temperature neared 36C.

Two of the children required hospital treatment after the incident in the Perth CBD.
