Everyone can get involved in Australia's first ever Early Learning Matters Week
A national initiative to show how early childhood education supports the wellbeing of children, families and society!
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:
SHARE YOUR PHOTOS
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)
Children at Explore & Develop Frenchs Forest walk through the terrain of a story about a bear hunt #EARLYLearningMatters
2. Take a photograph outside your early learning service with your team (with the permission of your service and staff members).
Post your photos to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with #EARLYLearningMatters
Tag your local Federal or State MP in the photo, if you know their Twitter or Facebook handle, or just #their name. Invite them to ‘like’ your service facebook page.
