We are pleased to introduce Wyndham Vale Tarneit YMCA Early Learning Centre’s Early Years Director: Deepali Sharma.


How long have you been working in early learning education?

For twelve years, I have had the privilege of working directly with children across kindergarten, before and after school care and school holiday programs. For nine of these years, I have been working with the Y.


Why are you passionate about early learning?

I believe knowledge is power; as early learning professionals, we play an important role in providing each child access and support to acquire that knowledge in a way that evolves them as self-confident, resilient, and socially responsible.


What are you most excited about in your role? 

To meet and build a strong collaborative partnership with all our new local families.

I am equally looking forward to developing and supporting our team members; empowering them to deliver best practise through a culture of continuous improvement where each child’s unique learning and wellbeing is celebrated.


What do you think will make Wyndham Vale YMCA Early Learning Centre unique

The centre configuration allows for children to flow between rooms and the outside spaces, leading to a more holistic learning approach.  The common area will allow all ages to come together and participate in shared activities and experiences.

Our centre is located exceptional close to local amenities for our community (railways, schools, retirement village) which will reduce families commute time, giving them more time together to enjoy doing important things that matter the most to them.


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

Reliable, loving, honest, caring, fun.


What do you enjoy doing most on the weekends?

Music, dancing, watching science fiction movies, reading about human psychology and different cultures and socialising with family and friends.


Deepali invites your family to visit our Tarneit centre for a guided tour. A member of our team will welcome you, answer your questions, and guide you through our indoor and outdoor spaces.
