The early years is a funny old sector to work in. We have to care and nurture whilst building business and increasing occupancy. We have to share and promote our settings whilst maintaining compliance with GDPR and safeguarding. We have to meet a plethora of regulations whilst meeting individual needs. No wonder early years leaders are so busy! As society changes and grows, becoming consumed in social media and online activity, the debate continues about the use of social media in the early years. We know that our potential customers, the families we are keen to walk through our door, are on social media every day, so is there a place for social media within our sector? If so, how can we use this safely and professionally to support the growth of our settings, particularly during these difficult times?
