The most important approach for Future-Learning-Oriented Education. According to our prediction, Child-Led Play will soon become the most sought-after approach in Early Childhood Education. It's the only approach that leads to Self-Directed Learning. It unlocks children's Full Potential faster than any other approach to date. The child is the sole Author of their learning experiences and the Master Learner. It's the most advanced approach and mastered only by World's Top Educators.
An advanced approach to planning that helps to address all children's current needs in a way that is most suitable for their momentary developmental requirements and preferences. It goes along with Child-Led Play, and is often called "Follow the Child" approach. It facilitates natural Leadership Mindset in children, and helps educators "get it right" for every child under their care. A must-have when you decide to implement Child-Led Play in your provision.
PERSONALISED LEARNING & CHILD PROFILING TOOLS
The Key Tools to making sure your children's individual needs and natural leadership skills have a chance to emerge and flourish. Future-Oriented Education is essentially based on Personalised Learning Processes. In our MASTER TEACHER ™ training program, teachers will learn how to easily implement Personalised Learning in the entire setting - at no extra cost, with no extra effort, and with no need to recruit additional staff. Child's Energy Expression Profiling is a state-of-the-art tool that will allow teachers to easily identify children's dominant learning styles, their natural gifts and talents, and their current learning and developmental needs. It will enable teachers to plan the best learning experiences for all children under your care.
A place where all children are fully supported to grow and learn to their full potential?
A place that nurtures EVERY CHILD's unique talents and natural leadership mindset, and prepares them for the future?
A place that works in line with the most effective educational approaches for Future Learning that only 2% of World's Top Educators offer?
You are in the right place!
You’ll probably also agree that Future Learning is no longer about knowledge, and not even so much about skills. It goes far beyond that!
Future Learning is about Values and Mindsets - because only these can guarantee that our children will succeed in the unknown future world.
Everything starts in Early Childhood - where confidence, leadership mindset and all life-long skills are shaped.
We are entering a massive Paradigm Shift in education that calls for celebration of child’s uniqueness, and promotion of positive self-image and conscious self-knowing. And when these are in place, all other skills, including academic skills, can be easily developed.
Personalised Self-Directed Learning, Child-Led Play, and Positive Pedagogy are the ONLY approaches that will facilitate this New Paradigm Shift.
YOUR SETTING can become one of the leading Early Childhood Education Providers in the world who can successfully implement and use these advanced approaches! And you can become the MASTER TEACHER!
Every child can help bring about new innovations, new ideas, new technologies, and new approaches that will make the world an amazing and safe place to live.
But to do this, children need to be able to explore who they really are as individuals, discover their inner gifts and natural talents, and fully express themselves in everyday life.
And this is probably what you would like to offer all children under your care too.
You would like to make a Real Change!

Single Setting License
The progress that teachers from Rural Teachers Association have achieved so far with support of MASTER TEACHER ™ Preschool Transformation Training and under leadership of John Ssentamu is UNPRECEDENTED!
Right after the first training session, when teachers got back to their preschool settings, they started implementing the strategies they have learned. And right away, children from rural areas of Masaka in Uganda have started receiving world class experiential, multi-sensory, holistic education!
This has been possible after only two MASTER TEACHER ™ Preschool Transformation Teacher Training sessions. This is an amazing achievement!
We have officially proven that world class education can be offered regardless of place, resources available. We have achieved what others see impossible!

- UK-certified Assessors-Evaluators in Child Care Learning Development and Play (CCLD and School Playwork)
- Early Years Professional Status Assessors (EYPS) - responsible for assessing the quality of Early Years and Early Childhood provisions in the UK and training Early Years Professionals
- World Schooling Parents
We’ve always believed that the role of an educator is to empower every child, to celebrate them for their gifts and uniqueness, to help them discover their talents and to offer them the most enabling environments to learn to their full potential. However, we grew up in Eastern Europe where discipline, labels and outdated teaching approaches were our reality and this left it's mark on our lives and self-image. Our natural talents were considered a "burden" and we grew up believing we were doomed to fail. This is the very reason we promised ourselves to make a real change in the way early years education is offered to all children around the world.
When we started our teaching career we knew we were able to work completely differently to 98% of other teachers - because we could see the world through the eyes of the child.
We had already been working along the principles of Personalised and Experiential Learning, but we constantly met people telling us that it was not possible to achieve any results without structured teaching, without rigid frameworks, discipline, testing and the same uniform goals for all children. We knew it wasn't true!
They would tell us we were dreamers.
One September night we made a bold decision that changed our lives forever. We left our country and decided to learn from the best. Cut the story short, we owned and managed one of the most challenging business - our own multilingual early childhood education provision.
And we did this in one of the most effective and at the same time the most demanding countries in the world - the United Kingdom - where a mistake can cost you losing your business, and where an unexpected inspection may appear at your setting at any time.
Our skills and insights were recognised and we were invited to work with prestigious educational institutions to deliver training to other early years education providers, and to inspect their provision to make sure they met the requirements of the British National Standards - the EYFS.
We were even featured in the Guardian as the ones who can potentially introduce major changes in Early Years education in the UK.
- We worked as assessors and evaluators in a few governmental projects such as the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS), National Vocational Qualifications in Child Care Learning and Development (CCLD), and National Vocational Qualifications in School Playwork.
- We collaborated with the biggest and the most respected Higher Education institutions in the country such as the Tribal Group, Kingston University, the JGA Group, and Canterbury Christ Church University.
- During the past 10 years we have inspected and assessed over 100 Early Childhood provisions - many of them represented the highest standards in education, whereas many were still far from it.
- We have travelled across and lived in 30 different countries where we've made friends with locals, lived their lifestyle, participated in their local customs, events and gatherings. We've visited local playgrounds, museums, children-dedicated places, nurseries and schools. We've talked to teachers, parents, children, and visionaries. We've experienced, tested, observed, compared, contrasted, evaluated, and enjoyed local infrastructure, parks, public spaces for families and children. We've seen the best and not so great. After all these years of living in the world education holds no secrets for us.
- We've been world schooling our son for 13 years non-stop. He's never been to school but he's been learning from the world all his life with great success. We have a deep understanding of Formal Education, Home Schooling, and Personalised Learning. We've experienced how children can flourish on both paths and what it takes to "get it right" for them.
- Our professional insights combined with life experience give us a unique Global Perspective. We know what all children have in common, no matter the location. We also understand the local perspective of educators and what they need in order to be able to offer the same highest quality of Early Childhood Education and Care.
The Secret Ingredient
After all these years we can confidently say that we know the secret of the world class Early Years provision - the one that can successfully nurture children’s natural leadership mindset and offer full potential learning.
The most successful settings are doing certain things the same way. They follow exactly the same procedures, they have the same systems in place, they share the same values.
We’ve put our experience and knowledge together, we've boiled it down, and we’ve created a powerful teacher training program that incorporates all key ingredients that guarantee the learning processes are highly personalised for every child, and that each child is celebrated for their uniqueness. This in turn serves as a very strong foundation for nurturing children’s natural leadership mindset.
If you decide to join our cutting-edge Teacher Training Program, we are going to reveal all the key principles that have to be in place in order to offer the world class Early Childhood Education.
And we will train your staff how to implement the most advanced and the most effective educational approaches that ever existed in the history of Education.
Who is this program for?
Our cutting-edge MASTER TEACHER Transformation Training Program has been designed for Early Childhood Education & Care providers - preschools, nurseries, kindergartens, play & learning centres, day cares, and after-school clubs. In particular, we are addressing all ambitious educators, thought leaders and visionaries who desire to make a long-term and positive impact on children's lives, who are deeply interested in children's well-being, who wish to offer world class Early Years Education and aspire to join the 2% of World's Top Educators.
How do you deliver your training program? Is it available online, or will you come to our setting to deliver it in-person?
The entire training content of MASTER TEACHER program is delivered as pre-recorded video training materials that are uploaded on an online platform, and that can be accessed from anywhere in the world (providing you have Internet). The training content is also mobile optimised. Although the input is online the entire training success lies in teachers' on-the-job implementation and hands-on work. If implemented within one setting it will be facilitated by a setting manager or a senior teacher as a group training. This add the element of collaboration, co-creation, sharing experiences, learning from each other. When offered via an External Facilitator for teachers from different setting the experience will be very similar - in each case the training will happen as a physical group event leading towards experiential hands-on learning. If implemented in one setting it will b
My setting follows the National Curriculum of our country - how will this affect the learning process for my teachers?
Our MASTER TEACHER training program is curriculum independent, and at the same time all-curriculum-friendly. In fact, the entire training content goes beyond any curriculum framework - it's based on pure methodology of working with Early Years children and the principles of Positive Pedagogy. So, whatever Curriculum Framework you follow, our training program will fit it nicely and expand your provision to the next level.
What is the time commitment and intensity?
All training content has been fully aligned with teachers' daily professional duties, so no extra workload will be needed to complete the program. Teachers will be able to apply all tools and strategies that they learn right away. The entire MASTER TEACHER program is optimised for 6 months - this will give teachers enough time for implementation and integration of the training content. Each training session is based on a micro learning mode - if implemented within a setting teachers' time commitment is estimated for 20-30 minutes per session only. If facilitated externally teachers will gather once a week for 2-3 hours training sessions at a designated place. However, since the training content consists of hands-on tasks and experiential projects that will need to be implemented as part of teachers' everyday duties, the actual time of their implementation within setting will depend on the teachers themselves.
What if I own/manage more than one setting? How can they participate in this program too?
Our MASTER TEACHER training program is designed as a Group Learning Experience. This means that all teachers will be attending our training sessions together at the same time. Or you can split them into subgroups if they work shifts. If you own/manage more than one setting, each setting can participate in this program separately under the supervision of your managers or other designated facilitators. However, from this webpage directly you can purchase a single setting license only (with up to 10 teachers). If you have more than one setting, or you want to train more than 10 teachers, please contact us for a special offer at info @ naturalbornleaders.org
If this program is available online, why do I need a training facilitator?
Yes, our MASTER TEACHER training program is available online. However, since the entire training content has been optimised as a Group Learning Experience to maximise the impact, accelerate the learning outcomes, and promote unified work and care standards, it's highly recommended that all teachers participate in our training sessions together at the same time. To manage the group learning process you will need to designate one person (this would be your setting manager or one of your senior teachers) who will supervise the training program, set the dates and place for the training sessions, play the video content, distribute downloadable resources, facilitate discussions and monitor progress making sure all the practical tasks and projects have been completed by all teachers. The facilitator doesn't need to do any special preparations or have facilitation experience - they will receive detail instructions and guidelines as part of this training program. If you wish to facilitate the training for local teachers in your region or country as an External Facilitator contact us to discuss partnerships opportunities.
Our teachers prefer not to get involved in any professional duties after working hours - will they need to study your training content on their own at home?
All training content of MASTER TEACHER Transformation Program is mobile optimised and is fully accessible on mobile phones. However, unlike most offers on the market, our training program is not a DIY e-learning course. Since it’s a group learning process which will be facilitated on setting premises during teachers’ working hours or in a designated place if facilitated externally. Setting managers/External Facilitators will be required to arrange a specific time and place for teachers to gather together for their training sessions.
How long will we have access to your training content?
MASTER TEACHER training program has been designed to be completed within 6 months. From the date you buy the program, you will have 6+1 months of access to our training content. This is to motivate your managers and your staff to follow the training process as we have designed it, and not to prolong it too much. Hence one extra month.
Are you planning to update your training content periodically?
The core training content of MASTER TEACHER program will most likely stay as it is now (with minor amendments here and there). However, for those who will wish to acquire more in-depth knowledge and experience in specific areas and topics, we are planning to develop a few short training programs as an extension to some core components and modules. We will let you know as soon as they are available.
