Kim Hunter, the film’s director and producer, has been working with young children her whole life, but formally in the classroom for the last two decades.

The 45 minute documentary film stems from her concerns about the ways our culture is orienting our thoughts about what is best for children.

“My hope with this film is that it can be used as a ‘spring board’ for conversations about what we might do better in the area of meeting the developmental needs of the early years of childhood.”

Our days are so over-scheduled that the opportunities for ‘down time’ for most people just don’t exist in a healthy way anymore.  The biggest effects of this imbalance are on the youngest ones among us who are victims of our society’s speed and competitiveness.

All are welcome!
