Children are joyfully devoted to learning from birth onward.

Often their playful activities are self-directed learning processes.

The New Learning Culture approach nurtures the child's natural, self-directed zest for learning.

The New Learning Culture approach is based on Maria Montessori's original writings and Rebeca and Mauricio Wild's child-centered educational model which is currently used successfully in over 180 alternative schools across Europe.

Carmen Gamper provides the New Learning Culture Course & individual consulting for parents & educators preschool to highschool:
NLC School model for child-centered education
• Enrichment for Montessori and Waldorf schools
• Self-directed learning techniques and materials from Montessori, Rebeca Wild, Froebel, Freinet, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia education.

The NLC training is based on the cutting-edge sciences of epigenetics and neuro-cardiology, which acknowledge the significance of prepared environments and positive emotions during the learning process.
