Child of the Universe started as an idea that I had nourished for many months and was launched in 2012 to meet the needs of a conscious lifestyle audience. It is published in memory of my son, Vincent Jardim, who passed away in a car accident in 2011 and in honour of his daughter who was born early 2012. Initially the magazine focussed on the Montessori method and was distributed solely to parents of Montessori children and as such the 1st issues focussed largely on conscious parenting. You see, Vincent was a Montessori pupil for some time and I was immensely impressed by the positive impact it had on him especially as he was classified as having ADD and had struggled in conventional schooling systems.
As it grows, Child of the Universe now reaches more and more people across South Africa who strive to live a more conscious and mindful lifestyle not only for themselves, but for the planet around them and the beautiful creatures that we share this planet with. The magazine now covers more topics of interest to all of these wonderful people. Each issue is now published alongside either Child of the Universe Montessori magazine, or Child of the Universe Positive Parenting magazine. Welcome to our world.
