SPRINGFIELD — The Lincoln Land Community College early childhood education program will host a viewing of the documentary “Tomorrow’s Hope, the Promise of Early Childhood Education” on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 7 p.m. in LLCC’s Trutter Center.

The public is invited to view the film at no charge. Doors open at 6 p.m. with refreshments provided. The event is co-sponsored by the Early Childhood Access Consortium for Equity. 

The film reunites with three present-day high school seniors who started in the first Educare preschool on the south side of Chicago and explores the continuing effects of early childhood education as they navigate their way through difficult circumstances.
