The Keynote & Keynote Presenter
Keynote: No Small Matter: Film Screening and Discussion 
Our future depends on our youngest children - on the words they hear in their first months of life, on the loving arms that hold them, on the kinds of experiences they have. But even with widespread support for high-quality, affordable, accessible early childhood education, millions of American children are still not getting the care they need to thrive and succeed. “No Small Matter” is a documentary film that brings public attention to this vital question by sharing powerful stories and stunning truths about the human capacity for early learning and the potential for quality early care and education to benefit America’s social and economic future. Lynette M. Fraga, Ph.D., executive director of Child Care Aware® of America and one of the experts featured in “No Small Matter,” will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterwards about next steps and what is being done and what needs to be done nationally to support an effective system for child care providers, families and children.
 
“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.
