Alumni News: CGMS Graduate Opens Montessori Elementary School in India

Claudine Noronha (EL-0116) was not new to Montessori when she joined our EL I-II program in 2016. She came to us with a Montessori Primary Certificate (EC) and many years’ experience in education. She was living in New Zealand while completing her elementary training.  After completion she returned to her home country and founded the first Montessori Elementary School in her city, Nashik (180 Km from Mumbai), Maharashtra, India. 

Royal Oak International Montessori School serves children in both Primary and Elementary. They currently have 15 children in the Elementary program and expect 3 more in November bringing them to 18 students by the end of the year. They will also start the Primary class in November.
