Carmen Gamper is an advisor for child-centered education. Carmen offers support, resources, and a complete, customizable school model (the NLC school model) for educators who are dedicated to innovative, learner-friendly, and “flow-friendly” practices in preschool and grade school.

Drawing from the practices of leading-edge schools, especially the Rebeca Wild based (RWB) schools across Europe, and the tools of child-centered education – including Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia – the NLC school model focuses on emotional health and experiential learning in a “state of flow,” which is the deep fulfilled focus that naturally occurs during play, self-chosen activities, and movement. Carmen helps educators prepare hands-on learning environments where learners acquire academic, creative, intellectual, emotional, and social skills, playfully, and at their own pace.

Rebeca and Mauricio Wild and their successful experimental school as a community, hands-on learning center inspired Carmen to become a director, co-creator, and educator in innovative schools in Italy and Austria. When relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area, California, in 2005, Carmen became an advisor for educators and parents to embrace new ways to teach and learn that deeply fulfill both learner and teacher.

You can use selected parts or the complete NLC school model to create or enrich a learning center, homeschooling group, or school.

You can invite Carmen to your school for consulting, staff development, and parent workshops.
