Mission

Provide a cool, safe, nurturing, homey, academically and culturally enriched environment for an all-rounded development of young children focused on kindergarten preparedness.

 

History

While teaching at reputed private schools and working with parents, the owner of Gurukool, Madhavi Prabha, realized that parents do not have enough time or resources to enrich the kids culturally while managing work-life balance. This inspired her to create Gurukool as an after-school program in 2018. 

After the COVID pandemic, the school has transitioned to a full-day child care and pre-schook/pre-K program that uses Madhavi's strong academic as well as cultural background.

Testimonials

"We are very lucky to have found Gurukool when we most needed a loving and caring daycare with small class size and home cooked hot meals for our 2 years old. Our daughter loves Miss Madhavi and enjoys learning and playing with her Gurukool friends. We see her excited to go to daycare every morning. She has learned so much in the 5 months that she has been enrolled in Gurukool. We see lots of improvement in her speech  from less than 10 words when she first enrolled to speaking sentences and singing songs In multiple languages.  Highly recommend Gurukool."

Manjarita L.

"We are thrilled to have found Gurukool when we first moved to the neighborhood. My son (2 years) has been going to Gurukool since November 2021. Our top key criteria were a small group of friends for my 2-year-old and home-cooked meals. Gurukool checks both these boxes and many more. Both Madhavi and Pranay provide a warm and loving environment that helps my kid feel just at home. I highly recommend Gurukool to anyone looking for home-based daycare for their little ones."

Shruti S. 

"My son was one of the first students with Ms. Madhavi …what a great decision for our family. She has the perfect balance between a home school (small group is important, especially during Covid, home cooked meals, personal attention) but she also has teaching experience from her past employment so she’s able to give age appropriate education. Definitely recommend!"

"My daughter loves Ms. Madhavi! She makes fresh meals everyday, does amazing art work, teaches bollywood dancing and language lessons too. In the past, my daughter never wanted to go to any school program but now she looks forward to going to Ms. Madhavi. She feels at home and gets so much love and attention at Gurukool. Gurukool offers 2 days, 3 days and 5 days program and this flexibility also works great for us. A lot of my friends living in other parts of the Bay Area say that we are very fortunate to have such a loving environment for our kids here in Almaden Valley."

The kids enjoy all the activities like singing, dancing, drawing and playing with Ms. Madhavi.
