“Golestan has become an institution that Bay Area Iranian-Americans can be proud of. Every detail has been carefully planned. With their support, guidance, and encouragement, I am opening my own ‘Golestan-inspired’ program and getting tremendous positive feedback from the community.”

– Baleen Bahmanian Shemirani, Co-founder Boostan Kids Persian Immersion preschool, San Mateo CA.
