Child of the Universe started as an idea that Linda, editor of the Child of the Universe Magazines, had nourished for many months and was launched in 2012 to meet the needs of parents of Montessori school children. It was created to honour the memory of Linda’s son, Vincent Jardim, who passed away in a car accident in 2011 and also in honour of his daughter who was born in 2012. Initially, the magazine focused on the Montessori Method and was distributed solely to parents of Montessori children and as such the 1st issues focused largely on conscious parenting. You see, Vincent was a Montessori pupil for some time and Linda 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.

Linda has always been intrigued by the Montessori Method of teaching, especially having lived with her two nieces who had been schooled at ‘Montessori on First’ in Edenvale. They are exceptionally advanced and both unique little people. Linda believes a lot of the credit goes to their early schooling method, which is carried through to their home environment. It’s a way of life.

As it has grown, the Child of the Universe Parenting Mags and Conscious Life Magazine now reach 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 magazines now cover more topics of interest to all of these wonderful people.

The magazines are published on ISSUU and can be accessed via this link: http://issuu.com/2luni-media and are tablet, iPad, smartphone and PC friendly. The ISSUU app can be downloaded in your app store on your smartphone, tablet or iPad.
