The Chattanooga Children's Program serves both typically-developing children and those with disabilities/special needs. Low student-to-teacher ratios are maintained, thus enabling individualized attention.

The school includes both center-based and home-based programs for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age. Programming includes:

• Classrooms with inclusion opportunities

• Active parental involvement

• Low-teacher to student ratio

• Highly educated and trained staff

• Accessible playgrounds

• Home based services for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and therapy needs

• Speech, feeding, occupational, and physical therapy integrated in the classroom activities

“I was terrified at the thought of sending my son to school, given his medical issues and delays. I was worried about how he would be treated by both the teachers and the other children. My son is surrounded by loving, caring, and dedicated teachers, staff, and children. Signal Centers is exactly what my son needed!”
– Chattanooga Parent
