NTC Club Dedinje


Children can come to the NTC club every day from Monday to Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The activity schedule is designed to be a mix of directed NTC activities and free play. Such a combination fosters the overall child's psychophysical development. 

On workdays after 5 p.m., we hold NTC workshops, NTC drama workshops and NTC ballet classes. More information can be found at the bottom of this page.


The author of the NTC Programme Dr Ranko Rajović with associates designed the programme that is implemented in 17 European countries and in the NTC Clubs. Play as child’s intrinsic motivation jis a key factor of the NTC programme. 

The NTC Learning System is an innovative method that fosters the overall (emotional, motor and cognitive) child’s development using the latest findings and models of neuro-educational science, and that is what makes it unique. The author of the NTC programme, Ranko Rajović, is a longstanding lecturer and the head of the Department of Educational Neuroscience at the Faculty of Education in Koper. Dr Rajović often emphasises the importance of reducing screen time and letting children be bored sometimes, because boredom is the driver of imagination. He also advises on how to design activities for children and stimulate their development through play.

The environment is ever-changing, habits change and all this affects our children’s abilities and opportunities, so we need to adjust the content and approach of education in order to maximally encourage children’s development and activate their potential. Schools of the future should provide solutions for the challenges. The NTC club arose out of a need to maintain continuity in working with children according to the NTC methodology, but also as a forerunner of a future school. We used to have workshops that were held once a week and camps that were organised only during the summer, and now we are able to offer a programme that children can attend every day, throughout the year.


NTC activities held at the NTC club daily:

  • NTC techniques (codes, illogical stories, hiding words, associative expression of songs/lessons)
  • NTC competitive and social games
  • NTC training grounds and movement games
  • NTC handicraft, music and drama workshops
  • Methods of foreign language learning through rhymes, songs and acting
  • NTC science workshops

The above mentioned activities foster:

  • development of intellectual skills and cognitive processes
  • development of concentration
  • development of children’s motor and thinking skills
  • development of imagination and creativity
  • fine motor skills
  • development of deep attention
  • helping each other, empathy and team spirit
  • communication, play, socialisation
  • positive emotions, empathy


Free play, integrated into daily activities, helps children develop various skills they will need in life, from making friends and negotiation to problem-solving, creative thinking and practising self-control. Play is the most reliable form of self-education and discovery of new things. It provides them with a safe environment for trying out new life skills and ways of being. Through the open exploring and "testing" of play, children become aware that taking action really is what it takes in life to reach a desired goal.

To find out more on the subject, read “Children’s clock ticks differently”.


The children with monthly membership for the entire school year are tested twice a year, in order to keep track of their progress and inform their parents about it. Our objective is to take care of the overall child development, together with the parents.

Children who attend sporadically are not tested.

The reports are strictly confidential and protected by a statement signed by both parties. They contain research results, an indication of stagnation or progress in development and most importantly – suggestions and advice for parents, in case they need to pay attention to a certain segment.


We focus on the whole child and their health and nutrition is a very important part of that. To ensure the highest quality, catering including snacks and dinner is provided. All meals are prepared from healthy, fresh ingredients, without additives, sweeteners and preservatives and with an optimal ratio of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. 
In addition to the above-mentioned, we also serve fruit snacks. For children with allergies we prepare a customised menu.
