Preschool Program Ages 2 to 5

Our preschool teachers focus on modeling empathy, sharing, role-playing, and the development of good listening and communication skills in a warm home environment. Our monthly themes cross curricular areas, so that children will practice mathematical concepts, work on social studies, experience traditional Persian music and movement, learn Farsi language concepts and vocabulary, and try new art experiences – all related to that month’s theme! Our preschool  classes are focused on being steeped in Iranian culture and preparing children for kindergarten. It runs from August through June.
   
• Based on our Montessori focus, practical life activities are integrated in to every lesson. On any given day, these skills may include sorting, cleaning, pouring liquid, lacing, and self-care.

• Our arts activities develop children’s interest through working with various media like watercolor, tempera paint, collage, sculpture, drawing, printing and more in both short and long-term projects. Each month, we will focus on a particular artist. Taking a cue from Reggio Emilia programs, open-ended arts activities pose many opportunities for children to make choices and express themselves.

• Music and movement using Persian/Iranian tunes and lyrics give children a fun way to learn about language, Iranian culture, and important festivals and it helps develop the happiness and joy in their lives!

Farsi Classes (K-12)

My curriculum for school-aged children provides rich materials and a variety of fun, appealing activities. When children are engaged in games and hands-on learning, they will naturally increase their Farsi/Persian listening and speaking skills. Using different media such as books and DVDs, I will share something enticing about Iranian culture, our theme, and our weekly letter.  I have done extensive research and have many great resources and lesson plans for children with limited knowledge of English language, who learn Farsi/Persian as a second language. The material we provide explores the sounds and names of the Farsi letters, and includes vocabulary. 

Our shelves are filled with wonderful literature and traditional books which cover Iranian heritage. These books are helping develop their curiosity and questions about learning Farsi/Persian language and culture for both preschool and school age children.

The 1 hour Oghab class will be held on Friday,From 3:15 to 4:30 and 4:30 to 5:30. It  will begin on August 8th, 2014. We typically have 4 class meetings each month.
