Geneva CUSD 304 and partner organizations are hosting a special event and film screening for the film “No Small Matter,” the first feature documentary to explore the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for good in America today: early childhood education. 
This free event is brought to the community through a collaboration by Geneva CUSD 304, The Kane County Health Department & AOK Network, Batavia School District 101, St. Charles Community School District 303, Fox Valley United Way/SPARK and Illinois StarNet.
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. The research shows that in order for us, as a community, to continue to prosper we should invest in our youngest citizens.
“No Small Matter” Movie Screening 
Wednesday, March 4 at Batavia Fine Arts Center   
Doors open/networking: 5:30-6 p.m.
Documentary screening: 6-7:15 p.m.
Panel discussion: 7:15-8 p.m.
(Professional development credits available for EC providers)
The evening will be full of information, conversation, and fun. Experts and policy makers will serve on the panel to present local data and answer questions about how the concepts in the film relate to this region and how to get involved.
