Golestan Colab Mission:

Golestan Education is comprised of two identities, the School and the Colab within one non profit organization. The Golestan Colab empowers and supports educators, parents, and community leaders 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

2) language immersion and cultural education

3) developing natural playscapes and  calm and beautiful learning environments.

What Golestan Colab offers:

The Colab  produces teaching materials modeled after its own  program curriculum. It researches best practices in bilingualism and child development and offers pro bono consulting to individuals and schools either wanting to enhance their current programs or develop experiential programs for children.

If you would like assistance starting a program in your own community, or if you already have an existing school and simply want to collaborate with us, please email us at

We believe every child should have a Golestan experience.  For this reason, we developed the Colab as a pro bono resource and consultancy for parents and educators across the globe.  This has given us the opportunity to expand our reach exponentially into communities beyond our socioeconomic and geographic borders.  From a basic consultation that shifts the perception of how children should be educated, to hands on partnerships that result in dramatic metamorphoses.


“We came to the Colab for advice on opening an after-school program for orphans in Nepal. What we received was far beyond anything we could have hoped for: guidance, support, curriculum development, and personalized training of our teachers in Nepal. What the Colab has done for us would have taken us years to create on our own. Most importantly, our children are growing and thriving thanks to the Golestan Colab. “

With their support and constant guidance, my sister and I have launched our very own daily Persian immersion preschool and the response from our community has been rewarding, inspiring and beyond our wildest imagination.What Golestan has inspired is not just a language immersion program, but a movement, and a way of life; one that respects nature, promotes empathy and kindness, and above all, an affinity for our rich, and beautiful Iranian language and heritage. “
