From 5 to 12 August you are invited to search the hashtag #EARLYLearningMatters in Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and share the photos that inspire you. 

If you work in Early Childhood Education here are some ideas for photos you can take and share:


1. Share a photo on social media of your favourite early learning activity, provocation or irresistible experience:

  • Add a caption describing it and use the hashtag #EARLYLearningMatters 
  • Make sure to show just the setup, or include children without identifying features (just hands, feet or back of head will do)

Post your photos to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with #EARLYLearningMatters
