Camille Prats Shines from Being Child Star to School Owner

Many of us know Camille Prats as the lead child star of “Sarah: Ang Munting Princesa”, the Filipino live action adaptation of 1985 Nippon Animation anime “Princess Sarah”. She also starred in several TV series and movies in the Philippines back in the 1990s.

But Camille is all grown up now, with three children – and from child star, she’s now the owner and directress of her own school!

John revealed that the school was actually the brainchild of his sister who learned about the Montessori method back in the US.

Si Camille ‘yung mas active sa buong core ng school kasi siya ‘yung may background pero kami, ‘yung family, kami ‘yung investors,” John explained.

Kay Cams talaga (‘yung idea). Noong nagbuntis siya kay Nathan, nasa States siya noon at wala siyang magawa. Nag-aral siya ng Montessori teaching, so nung dumating siya ni-renovate ‘yung lumang office ni daddy, tapos ginawang three or four classrooms. Nag-start siya tatlo ang teacher niya. Siya nagtuturo minsan. Nag-start ng small and eventually ito na kami buong family na ang nag-invest.

While the family owned a small pre-school they opened in 2009, they would expand to build a bigger school building and began accepting elementary students in 2014.

Totally hands on in the school, Camille taught junior pre-school when the school was still starting out. Now the President and Directress, she continues to teach from time to time while she focuses on the administrative aspects of running the school.

Camille had guidance from their dad who is a businessman. Together as a family, they plan on making sure that the school will be at par with other high-end schools.
