Catch the Vermont premiere of a provocative documentary that sheds light on early childhood education. Hear powerful stories and learn stunning truths about the human capacity for early intelligence and the potential for quality early care and education to benefit America’s social and economic future.
Our future depends on our youngest citizens: on how many words they hear in their first months of life; on how often they are held; on the kinds of experiences they have.
Yet even with business interests, scholars, and politicians on both sides of the aisle lining up to support the early childhood education cause, millions of American children are still not getting the care they need to succeed—or even to keep up.
Catch the Vermont premiere of No Small Matter, the first feature documentary to explore the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for leveling the playing field for children today: affordable access to high-quality child care.
After the screening, listen to a panel discussion featuring:
Lynette Fraga, executive director of Child Care Aware of America
Matthew Melmed, executive director of Zero to Three
Dr. Alan Guttmacher, pediatrician, medical geneticist and former director of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development
