Chattanooga Enrichment and Activities
Mathnasium of Chattanooga & Hixson
At Mathnasium of Chattanooga, we teach kids math the way that makes sense to them. Students start by taking a customized assessment which pinpoints their needs. We then design a personalized learning plan for teaching the concepts the student needs to master. Finally, Mathnasium’s specially-trained instructors implement the learning plan and work with each student to ensure they master the material. All of this happens in a fun and encouraging environment. When math makes sense, kids leap way ahead – whether they started out far behind or already ahead in math.
Center of Music for Early Development
Center of Music for Early Development is an early childhood development program designed for children from 2 months old through second grade. Combining music education and creative movement, each child is encouraged to participate at his/her own pace in music small groups.

In addition to various music small groups, private piano lessons are also available!
