12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
North Olympic Library System

Event Details

You are asked to view the documentary No Small Matter prior to the Local Panel discussion time of Noon August 13th. Once you are registered for the Local Panel you will receive a link and password to view the documentary. 

No Small Matter is a 45 minute documentary built from stories of real children, families, and teachers, illustrating the impact of high-quality early childhood experiences. The documentary meets parents who are struggling to do their best for their kids, incredible teachers who model what early childhood classrooms should and could be like, and children learning and developing in real time. The film is also firmly grounded in science, opening up the “black box” of what’s happening inside children’s brainsThese positive, hopeful stories serve as motivational tools in both the film and the No Small Matter campaign: Change is necessary, critical, and attainable if we put our minds to it.


The Local Panel is a great opportunity to ask questions from local experts as well as engage in further conversation about the film. The live program will include the following Panelists:

Anna King, Early Childhood Education, Peninsula College

Bonnie Schmidt, Little Rhythms Learning Center

Jennifer LuBecke, NOLS West End Youth Librarian

Mary Budke, Boys and Girls Club of the Olympic Peninsula

Representative Mike Chapman, 24th Legislative District

Moderated by Christy Smith, United Way of Clallam County

When you register for the film and panel you will be asked if you have any questions for the panelists. You can also submit questions prior to the event by emailing directly.

This will be a phenomenal event for caregivers, early learning professionals, and anyone with children in their life.
