How can we utilize and expand our knowledge of children’s brain development to better support families in our communities? The evening of November 3rd, conference attendees will enjoy clips and conversations around the movie “No Small Matter.” Facilitated by NCFL early childhood specialists, attendees will view three clips related to brain development, the opportunity gap, and children’s executive function, with each clip followed by discussion.

“No Small Matter” is the first feature documentary to explore 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.
