Jamie Anderson and Josh Parker have had enormous success in Los Angeles with a business that keeps growing every year because they have a reputation for great work that starts and ends with a hands-on, “can-do” approach that all schools appreciate. They have developed a comprehensive website that runs almost all aspects of their business and is invaluable for franchisees. It makes training all tasks, from the very least to the most important, easy by automating them for extreme efficiency.
Considering that demand keeps growing for after school programs, and that shrinking school budgets increase the market for someone to take over hands-on learning…why not Parker-Anderson?

History: The seeds of Parker-Anderson Enrichment were planted when Josh Parker and Jamie Anderson were kids. Josh was into sports and chess. Jamie was into the arts and sciences. As they grew into adults, childhood passions blossomed into hobbies and careers: Jamie became a professional singer-songwriter and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Josh, after finishing college at Berkeley, started teaching chess to elementary students.
Ten years later, they are the leading enrichment company in California, providing after school programs in more than 200 schools with qualified instructors teaching Lego Robotics, Young Architects, Mock Trial and Public Speaking, Marine Biology, Jewelry Making, Musical Train, Chess, and more! The first franchise came into being in 2014 in North Orange County and the rest is history…in the making!
Jamie and Josh have had enormous success in Los Angeles with a business that is still growing because they have a reputation for great work that starts and ends with a hands-on “can-do” approach that schools appreciate.

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 that I 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 to many wonderful years to come.
