Updated: Mar 15, 2023

VERO BEACH – On October 21st, Childcare Resources will present a screening of ‘No Small Matter,’ the first feature documentary to explore the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for change in America today: early childhood education.

The film is built from stories of real children, families, and teachers, illustrating the impact of high-quality early childhood experiences. It features parents who are struggling to do their best for their kids, incredible teachers who model what early childhood classrooms should and could be like, and children learning and developing in real time.

‘No Small Matter’ is the first feature documentary to lay out the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years.

“We are thrilled to bring this groundbreaking documentary to Indian River County, where Childcare Resources has worked for twenty-five years to provide and promote high-quality early learning experiences,” said Shannon McGuire Bowman, Executive Director of Childcare Resources. “’No Small Matter’ provides an in-depth look at how crucial early education is, as well as the challenges both families and educators face.”

A cocktail reception will begin in the Vero Beach Museum of Art atrium at 5:00 pm, with the documentary screening to follow at 6:00 pm. Join ‘No Small Matter’ co-director Danny Alpert following the film for a community conversation about early childhood education in Indian River County, both today and in the future.

“Early learning has such explosive potential to shape children’s futures, and reshape our society,” say co-directors Danny Alpert, Greg Jacobs, and Jon Siskel. “It’s the most rational, no-nonsense, high return investment that we can make.”
