Designed to kickstart the public conversation about early childhood care and education, No Small Matter is the first feature documentary to tackle this topic. This multifaceted project unveils how our country raises its youngest citizens, exploring why making the most of this time of their lives is so crucial, and most importantly, what we can do to change the perception of when learning begins. Through poignant, inspiring stories and surprising humor, the film lays out the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years, revealing how our failure to act has resulted in an everyday crisis for American families and a slow-motion catastrophe for the country.
Join us after the screening for an engaging discussion with local leaders in child development, including: Sheila Hanna, MS. Ed., Professor of Early Childhood Education, Westchester Community College; Dr. Mark Bertin, MD, Developmental Pediatrician and author of How Children Thrive; Terry Becker, MSW, Director of Children’s Services, Ossining Children’s Center; and moderator Marilyn Wishnie, MS in Education, Former Principal, Hillside Elementary School, Hastings-on-Hudson.
This event is presented in partnership with the Ossining Children’s Center.
