No Small Matter Film Screening
August 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
There are 24 million children under the age of six in America today, all of whom need to be taken care of
all day, every day by an adult. Who provides that care—and how they do it—is an often overlooked,
underestimated, and potentially game-changing issue in America today.
To address this issue, Great Rivers United Way and the sparks! collaborative are bringing to town a
documentary about the crisis in childcare and the critical brain development that happens in children
ages birth to five. The nationally acclaimed documentary No Small Matter will be shown free of charge on August 28th at 6:00pm
Through stories and humor, No Small Matter lays out the evidence of the importance of the first five
years of life, and discusses how at this same critical time in development, too many parents are unable
to find quality, affordable childcare.
