Reinventing Education

The mission of Golestan Education is to support the development of curious, creative, and altruistic children through experiential and heuristic learning, with a special focus on heritage language immersion and cultural education. Golestan Education aims to do this through the following offerings:

Our preschool and elementary school give children a deep understanding and respect for the world they live in, through a fully integrated, experiential approach to teaching.  The child’s entire experience is guided by a rich and comprehensive curriculum.  Learn more about our elementary school here.

The Golestan Colab empowers and supports educators, parents, and communities to create their ideal learning environment for children by offering pro-bono consultancy and resources in the following areas: 1) the integration and application of hands-on and experiential learning practices and approaches, and 2) language immersion and cultural education.
