The first five years of a child’s life are so important. And yet high-quality childcare can be difficult to come by in our country. Want to learn more about the state of early childhood in America? Come to a free screening this Monday, April 29, 6 p.m. at the Marquis Theatre in Middlebury.
No Small Matter is a feature documentary that explores what the filmmakers call “the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for good in America today: early childhood education.” Through poignant stories and surprising humor, 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 American families, and a slow-motion catastrophe for the country.
