“Have you wanted your child to stay in school, and not grow up? This happened to me at Golestan. To say it was the most caring, nurturing, and thoughtful preschool I have ever had the privilege to be part of would be an understatement. I cried when my boy moved on to kindergarten. I support this school because I want other children everywhere to have the same experience he did.”
- American father of three boys, about his youngest son.
Our beautiful building is for sale; if we do not buy it, we will lose our home.
Since 2008, we have been establishing the school, training and retaining excellent teachers, and perfecting our curriculum. With a solid foundation, we must now secure a permanent home for Golestan by purchasing the building in which it resides.
