Parker-Anderson Enrichment, Inc. - Franchise

Parker-Anderson is a children’s enrichment franchise that provides multiple income streams through schools, community centers, summer camps, and birthday parties. We go where the kids go, all year round!

Most other children’s enrichment companies are unidimensional – they just have one type of enrichment course that they operate such as art classes, LEGO related classes, robotics classes, sports classes, cooking classes, etc.  We have 20 exciting enrichment classes to choose from! New franchisees will receive 15 classes right off the bat. 

Why is this important?

Well, the other guys can only offer one after-school class each week at a school, but we can offer many.  So instead of generating income from just one class each week at a particular school, consider the income from seven, ten, or more classes in the same school!  If you do the math you will see the income potential is far greater with Parker-Anderson Enrichment THAN ANY OTHER CHILDREN’S ENRICHMENT FRANCHISE.

It's a no-brainer.

Now consider that the cost of a Parker-Anderson Enrichment franchise is no more than the other children’s enrichment franchises out there.  So we have far greater revenue potential than anyone else, but NOT a higher cost of entry.

Parker-Anderson Enrichment has had enormous success in Los Angeles and other cities around the country. Our business keeps growing every year because we have a reputation for great work that starts and ends with a hands-on, “can-do” approach that all schools appreciate. We’ve developed a sophisticated and easy-to-use back-end platform. We call it the FMT (Franchise Management Tool). The FMT manages almost all aspects of your business. The FMT handles your enrollments, tracks your income, and stores numerous training materials including dozens of videos.  The FMT makes managing tasks, from the very least to the most difficult, easy by automating them for extreme efficiency.


We meet students where they already are: at their schools - after-school.

No parent has to pick up, drive, and drop off their child at a different location. Students simply stay at school for an extra hour—no tests, no books, but meaningful ways to learn—tactile, visual, and fun!

There is a huge market for after-school enrichment that was not there fifteen years ago because:  

  • When parents or caregivers work, enrichment is a valuable alternative to day care.
  • Schools are busy! They often do not have time, resources, or funding to develop their own enrichment programs.

I was first introduced to Parker-Anderson through my husband, Niels. It was the summer we met, 2012, and he was working as an instructor teaching mainly science courses, his specialty. I remember him telling me how much he enjoyed working with Jamie and Josh and how much he was discovering his passion for teaching science.A year later, when we moved to Orange County, Niels' schedule didn't allow him to continue teaching with the Orange County branch. However, at the time, I was looking for a job in that area, so I turned to Parker-Anderson. Starting as an instructor gave me valuable experience teaching most of the classes from the list of offerings.I, like my husband, enjoyed working as an instructor and being part of the Parker-Anderson team. So, when the previous Orange County director left, and Josh and Jamie offered me the director position, I immediately accepted. And when Parker-Anderson started looking towards franchising, I knew thatI wanted to invest more of myself into the company by purchasing the Orange County branch as a franchise.Not only have Josh and Jamie been incredibly supportive throughout the transition, my passion for what Parker-Anderson does has increased tenfold. Getting to work with schools offering much needed programs after school and during summer has been incredibly rewarding both mentally and financially. Niels and I are honored to be Parker-Anderson's first franchisees and look forward too many wonderful years to come.Laurelinda Hauksson
After working at Parker Anderson Enrichment for a couple of years, I was offered the chance to own my own franchise. I jumped into the opportunity head on and have never looked back. I love being my own boss and working on my terms! I cannot thank Jennifer, the Franchise Director enough for her support.I’m so grateful that I’m working with great teachers, schools and curriculum,and still have time for my family.Stacey Russo
