No Small Matter

April 16, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - April 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Children who are provided with early education opportunities do better in school as they grow older, and are more likely to attend college and be successful in their careers. However, the lack of high quality, affordable childcare has emerged as a serious challenge for families throughout our region. The No Small Matter film will shed light on the importance of a child’s development before age five, and how the impact of learning at this age plays a role in shaping the citizens of tomorrow.

After the screening, we’ll be joined by a panel of local experts to discuss the importance of early childhood care, and the potential to benefit children and families in our region.
