Strengthen your child’s flow state ~ the optimal way of learning
Have you seen your child focus so deeply that they lose themselves in a task? When did you last lose track of time because you were having so much fun? This focused, fulfilling state –called flow in psychology– naturally occurs in children and adults during play, movement, and hands-on activities they love. In flow, we feel alive, we are authentically interested and deeply absorbed –and this is how we learn best and achieve more!

“Flow to Learn is a beautifully-written and well-researched resource for children and parents. We’ve found it incredibly helpful as we navigate the joys and challenges of having our two-and-a-half-year-old son home with us (all the time right now, due to the shelter-in-place order).”
—Dr Joel Cabrita (History, Stanford University)
Carmen Viktoria Gamper is an advisor and speaker for innovative child-centered education, and proud author of Flow To Learn. Carmen became an expert on childhood flow states by supporting and witnessing hundreds of children learning on their own terms in the carefully prepared, hands-on learning environments of innovative summer camps and schools.
As founder of New Learning Culture (NLC) Consulting, Carmen advises preschools and grade schools on how to prepare effective, flow-rich learning environments. She assists educators in setting the tone for learning in their child-led classrooms, so children can playfully yet assuredly acquire intellectual, academic, practical, and creative skills at their own pace.
For Flow To Learn, Carmen consulted with Susanne Stover, writer, editor, and mother of two marvelous young masters of flow. Susanne’s insights further support parents in practicing flow-friendly education at home. Sybille Kramer created the delightful drawings in the book.
