Detail:  No Small Matter is the first feature documentary to explore the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for change today: early childhood education. Through poignant stories and surprising humour, the film lays out the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years and reveals how our failure to act on that evidence has resulted in an everyday crisis for families.

No Small Matter is unique in the way it dives deep into the complicated science, history, and sociology that has brought our early care and education system to where it is today but does so without sacrificing entertainment or emotional impact. From a comic cameo by Cookie Monster to the tearful testimonial of an amazing preschool teacher making poverty-level wages, the film has the power to move audiences in ways that a policy fact sheet simply can’t do.

This feature event will include popcorn and a candy bar, a viewing of the movie, and discussion period as well as a special gift for each participant!

Registration fee includes viewing of movie, all materials, nutrition break and a special gift
