“High-quality early education isn’t just powerful, it’s possible!”

Join Let’s Grow Kids and the Community of St Johnsbury for a film screening, “No Small Matter” and a conversation with your legislators about why it’s important for us to invest in high-quality, affordable child care.

No Small Matter is a documentary film and nationwide engagement campaign that brings public attention to this important issue by sharing powerful stories and 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. The multifaceted documentary reveals how our country is raising its youngest citizens, why making the most of this time in their lives is so crucial, and most importantly, what we can do to change the perception of when learning begins. The first major documentary film to tackle this topic, No Small Matter is designed to kick-start the public conversation about early care and education and why it’s important for the state to make significant investment in high-quality early care and learning programs. A quick preview of the film can be seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Shm-KRh4LFg.
