Parent Enrichment Workshop Series

At Lollipop & Associates, we firmly believe that parent and family engagement has a profound influence on children’s school success and that when parents are engaged, their children do better in school - and schools get better.  Our Connect 4 Success: Parents as Partners program offers parent enrichment workshops that provide parents with education and training while also providing techniques and skills to support their children’s academic success through learning at home.  We offer subject specific parent enrichment workshops that make connections to what their children should know and be able to do at the elementary, middle and high school level. 


The Connect 4 Success: Parents as Partners project seeks to provide parents with enrichment workshops that build their capacity to support their children’s learning at home. 

Parent enrichment workshop series will provide education and training to parents on strategies and techniques that: 

  1. Deepen their connection to their children
  2. Involve reading and math activities.
  3. Encourage discussion between parent and child.
  4. Identify subject specific activities to use at home to stimulate learning.
  5. Develop parents’ ability to monitor and support their children’s progress.
