Setting New Standards in Education

Golestan’s Mission

At Golestan Education, we partner with children, families and educators to create joyful learning environments that are collaborative, grounding and connected to the natural world. We do challenging and meaningful work that creates a community of kind, thoughtful, and courageous learners who will embrace diversity and steward our earth for future generations.

Golestan Education fulfills its mission through the following offerings:

  • Our preschool and after school programs use a fully integrated, experiential based approach in a Persian language immersion environment.
  • Our elementary school uses an academically rigorous, project-based learning approach with a global perspective.
  • The Colab is a pro-bono consultancy that collaborates with local and global educators and community organizations to create their ideal learning environment for children.

We Are Kind. We Are Thoughtful. We Are Courageous.

Redesigning Learning Spaces

Conveniently located in the Albany, Berkeley, El Cerrito Corridor in the East Bay, we are located just two blocks north of Kensington Circle.

Golestan Kids admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship, and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
