What is a Rootle?!

It’s an informal version of the word root and it means to dig. It is used in the context of digging deeper and learning on a different level.

The term root, loosely defined as origin or home, connects to our mission of making children and families feel like we are part of your town, community, neighborhood and home. Added bonus: Rootle riffs off our own Read-a-Roo.

That’s what Rootle means to us. See what Rootle means to your NC neighbors here.
