Nourishing Families, Planting Roots
“Human love begins in utero, is carried through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal nurturance of bonding…yet the most critical, formative relationship – the relationship between mother and infant…is not valued, nurtured or supported by our culture” Magical Parent, Magical Child Mendizza & Pearce
Home Roots is here to nurture home and roots, to support educators and parents in nourishing and raising children.
Nourishing Emerging Families
Child rearing is a wild & beautiful ride. When I moved from the realm of educator to parents I came to a deeper understanding of the support that families need and created Home Roots – to help nourish families, to support young learners in planting roots and unfolding. I offer three areas of expertise
Our earliest experiences lay the foundations for future patterns of behavior. Loving relationships, nurturing environments, time spent in nature, freedom to play – all things fundamental to the development of young children. I support parents and educators in creating nourishing learning environments and experiences that foster the innate curiosity children are born with. Through downloadable guides, resources ad consulting, I work to support the unfolding of the whole child.
When mothers are healthy, families are healthy. I offer care to mothers at any stage in your parenting journey – whether you had your baby 2 weeks or 20 years ago, you need nourishing. I provide meals, childcare, light housekeeping & care packages (thoughtfully chosen products) to nourish and support you. Visit the services page to learn more.
Slow Family Living
Looking after children in any capacity can feel challenging and chaotic. Leaning into slow living can provide the foundation that you need in your home or classroom to feel present, to respond to the needs of young people with patience and love.
