I want to show root category with it's child categories on home page. I've done my code so far, but nothing happens.

Vendor/Module/Block/CategoriesCollection.php

<?php
namespace Vendor\Module\Block;
class CategoriesCollection extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
{
protected $_categoryHelper;
protected $categoryFlatConfig;
protected $topMenu;

 */
public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context,
    \Magento\Catalog\Helper\Category $categoryHelper,
    \Magento\Catalog\Model\Indexer\Category\Flat\State $categoryFlatState,
    \Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Topmenu $topMenu
) {
    $this->_categoryHelper = $categoryHelper;
    $this->categoryFlatConfig = $categoryFlatState;
    $this->topMenu = $topMenu;
    parent::__construct($context);
}
/**
 * Return categories helper
 */
public function getCategoryHelper()
{
    return $this->_categoryHelper;
}
/**
 * Return top menu html
 * getHtml($outermostClass = '', $childrenWrapClass = '', $limit = 0)
 * example getHtml('level-top', 'submenu', 0)
 */
public function getHtml()
{
    return $this->topMenu->getHtml();
}
/**
 * Retrieve current store categories
 *
 * @param bool|string $sorted
 * @param bool $asCollection
 * @param bool $toLoad
 * @return \Magento\Framework\Data\Tree\Node\Collection|\Magento\Catalog\Model\Resource\Category\Collection|array
 */
public function getStoreCategories($sorted = false, $asCollection = false, $toLoad = true)
{
    return $this->_categoryHelper->getStoreCategories($sorted , $asCollection, $toLoad);
}
/**

 *
 */
public function getChildCategories($category)
{
    if ($this->categoryFlatConfig->isFlatEnabled() && $category->getUseFlatResource()) {
        $subcategories = (array)$category->getChildrenNodes();
    } else {
        $subcategories = $category->getChildren();
    }
    return $subcategories;
}
}

</ul>

Vendor/Module/registration.php

<?php
\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::register(
\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::MODULE,
'Vendor_Module',
__DIR__
);

How can I display root category, for example ID65, with it's subcategories?

I have to do something similar and I have used following code to achieve the requirement.

You can modify this code according to your requirement. I hope this will be helpful.

I have to show this block on cms page, so I have called it in CMS page in admin. You can call this or show this block at any place you want.
