Unvaccinated children will be banned from NSW childcare facilities from January after state parliament passed legislation.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull wrote to state and territory leaders in March requesting a uniform approach and the NSW legislation means directors of childcare centres will face a fine of up to $5500 if they break the rules.

"We are being very clear that choices of conscientious objectors, which are not evidence-based, will no longer be allowed to impact other families," NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said on Thursday.
