6 to 12-year olds in the after-school program participate in an array of enrichment activities which center around collaboration, respect for others, and independent thinking. While working cooperatively with their peers, they learn to read, write, knit, paint, cook, play music, build strength and flexibility with yoga, draw, make dolls and ceramics, garden, performing arts, play music, practice storytelling, paint and much more… all only in Persian!



The after schoolers enjoy the same low child:teacher ratio as the morning program students (<1:4) and there is an emphasis on the reuse of materials and creative applications for everyday objects. The program is structured to include a healthy snack, activity time, games, and quiet time.

Golestan’s after school program runs Monday through Friday from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. (late drop off option at 3:30 is available).  Depending on availability, enrollment is quarterly with Mon/Wed/Fri, Tues/Thur or Mon-Fri options.
