Frequently Asked Questions
How do we access consultation?
A preschool teacher can call Project Enlightenment and ask for a request for consultation form. Both the parent and teacher sign and complete the form and return it to Project Enlightenment. A consultant will contact the school to plan an observation.
What does an observation look like?
A consultant will contact the child’s teacher and schedule a day and time to observe in the classroom. Following the observation, the consultant will meet with the child’s teacher and parent(s) to develop strategies that will best support the child in the classroom so that she or he experiences success.
How do I make a request for consultation?
Request for consultations are initiated by teachers of preschool, childcare center and kindergarten classrooms in Wake County with parents' written consent.
What parent workshops do you offer?
Each year different parent workshops are available on a variety of topics relating to children. Please refer to the Workshops Section of this website under Parent Resources. The current brochure is available under the Parents section of this website.
Do parent workshops have a fee?
There is a small fee for parent workshops. However, we do not want the fee to keep a Wake County parent from attending. Please see the Workshop section of the website or the parent education workshop brochure for fee information.
Can I bring my child to a parent workshop? Do you offer babysitting?
Our parent workshops are geared towards adult education. Unfortunately we do not have child care available at Project Enlightenment so please make other arrangements for your children.
I was told I had to take a parenting course. Can you give me a certificate for attending the course?
