As a proud member of the Golestan Heritage Language Collaborative we are honored to have access to the rich curriculum of the Golestan Kids program in Berkeley. Both the morning preschool program and afternoon follow a monthly theme schedule. We start introducing Persian alphabets from younger age through music, arts, Yoga and different games.
The music section includes singing, musical games, movement, and instrument exploration. By engaging children in musical games and singing activities they will be able to improve their Persian vocabulary while having a fun musical time.
The arts and crafts portion of the class uses inspiration from Persian folklore and expressions to introduce aspects of Persian culture as well as grow vocabulary base on monthly theme schedule.
Preschool program for both morning and afternoon classes focus on teaching empathy, sharing, role-playing, and the development of good listening and communication skills. The children also develop social and self-help skills in a warm and nurturing environment.
in our rich and exceptionally art program, children learn to work with various media such as watercolors, tempera, clay, collage, pastels and more.
The Preschool program is structured to include a healthy snack.
