Early Childhood Education
Safe & Sound Hillsborough and the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County partnered to host a virtual film screening and panel discussion of No Small Matter. The documentary explores the most underestimated and powerful force for change in America today: early childhood education.
No Small Matter
Following the screening, Safe & Sound Hillsborough’s Executive Director Freddy Barton, moderated a virtual discussion with a panel of experts and advocates to discuss the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years, and how failure to act on that evidence has resulted in an everyday crisis for American families.
