“Man is capable of becoming anything, and his apparent helplessness as a child is the seedbed of his distinctive personality.
— Maria Montessori, The Secret of Childhood
The radicle is the part of a plant's seed that develops into the primary root. When the radicle is healthy, the plant will take root and thrive.
Like the radicle, the young child's mind grows and expands at the most crucial time in human development, from birth to three years. When the child's mind is allowed to flourish in health, the body, intellect and spirit take root, trusting in the self and in the environment.
As your young child navigates this time of intense, absorbent, unconscious development you serve as a compass - a guide.
As we guide our children, we must continue to learn and grow ourselves.
Radicle Beginnings provides services to parents, teachers and caregivers through consulting, mentorships and workshops. We will help you help your child by providing simple tools and effective strategies to make life a little less chaotic and much more purposeful.
