Carmen Gamper and New Learning Culture (NLC)  Consulting offer advice, support, resources, and a complete, customizable school model for schools, teachers, and parents who are dedicated to innovative, learner-friendly education in preschool and grade school.

School can be an inspiring, happy place where learners and teachers love to be! Drawing from the practices of leading-edge schools, especially the Rebeca Wild based 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. In carefully prepared hands-on learning environments, learners can acquire academic, creative, intellectual, emotional, and social skills at their own pace.

The concept—school as an inspiring hands-on learning center— inspired Carmen Gamper to become a teacher, co-creator, and director in innovative schools in Italy and in Austria.

Now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Carmen supports educators and parents to embrace new ways to teach and learn that deeply fulfill both teacher and learner.

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.

Flow To Learn: A Parent’s Guide to Recognizing and Supporting Your Child’s Flow State – the Optimal Condition for Learning
