I am passionate to play a role in nurturing children in their first five years of life, by mentoring a team of Early Learning Educators to create programming that supports child led exploration through play-based activities.

I believe all children are capable and active learners, who thrive best in a safe environment for children to grow into their full potential.

A core focus on positive relationships with the children and engaging with their families, creating strong partnerships with the wider Tarneit community, and mentoring our team alongside Jaz, our Centre Manager.

To support and nurturing children while they are growing and learning; giving each child individual time to both develop and master skills at all ages.


What are you most excited about starting this role?

Building upon my past experiences in Early Learning Education to implement and maintain high quality programming and practices.


What do you enjoy doing most on the weekends? 

I enjoy spending quality time with my family.


What are 5 words your friends would use to describe you: 

Supportive, caring, loving, fun and organised.


How can Early Learning support families to thrive?

Collaborative partnerships with families through inclusion in activities and learning experiences that are reflective of their culture and interests. 


What do you think makes Tarneit YMCA Early Learning Centre unique?

Holistic approach to programming, where every child will have ample opportunities to learn and explore through play based activities and experiences. 


Anything else, you would like to add.

I value family and staff participation in our program and activities, which supports meaningful learning outcomes and experiences for children.

I take great pride in mentoring and supporting my team equally to achieve their goals.


Sharan would love to meet your family. When you book a guided tour of our centre, a member of our team will welcome you, answer your questions, and guide you through our indoor and outdoor spaces.
