Golestan After School instruction is project-based and process-driven. Students participate in an array of enrichment activities which center around collaboration, respect for others, and creative processing.

While working cooperatively with their peers, they learn to knit, paint, cook, play music, build strength and flexibility with yoga, draw, make dolls and ceramics, garden, partake in farming, performing arts, explore science, practice storytelling, paint, and much more.

The after-schoolers enjoy a low ratio and we continue to put a big emphasis on the reuse of materials and creative applications for everyday objects. The program is structured to include a healthy homemade nourishing snack, activity time, games, and quiet time.

Grades: The After School Program is for K-12th grade.

Language: Instruction in the after school program is in both English and Persian. Students attending after school have a variety of comprehension and spoken Persian levels (from basic to advanced).

Persian Literacy Instruction (reading and writing in Persian) is an optional part of the After School program. If you are interested in this option for your child, please be sure to indicate it in your email.
