Preschool Plus provides a fun, safe, and stimulating environment for 3, 4, and 5-year-olds to preheat their brains before the emotional and social rigors of life in kindergarten. With 25 years of experience as an early-childhood teacher and director, Kathy Hughes leads a team of certified educators that focus on cultivating the cognitive and developmental needs of each child. Although each instructor is equipped with eyes in the back of her head, a small teacher-to-student ratio ensures each child is nurtured and cared for. Based on the retention theory of the "Song That Never Ends," monthly themes are incorporated into every section of the curriculum. Each classroom also contains interest centers geared toward literacy, science, music, and how to properly eat an overstuffed burrito.

At Iron and Grace, butterflies can emerge from their corporeal cocoons in kettlebell and Pilates classes that help to build strong and balanced bodies with an emphasis on functional-fitness training. The kettlebell program’s full-body exercises exemplify this approach, eschewing repetitive movements in favor of motor-recruitment patterns centered by the iron cannonball. Kettlebell exercises work the entire body as students hoist and swing them by their attached handle, increasing both cardio and muscular endurance and helping to make everyday tasks such as bicycling and climbing corporate ladders that much easier. Instructor Chad Sexton holds four-hour training sessions a week for small groups of six students or fewer, teaching them the essential moves of his beloved discipline before guiding them onward to the gym’s more advanced kettlebell classes.

The Athens School of Music's skilled instructors impart students of all ages and skill levels with note-hitting know-how. The one-on-one lessons–overseen by experienced musicians trained in a variety of styles–enhance pupils' relationships with an array of instruments, including guitar, piano, and electric kazoo. Seven studios enable artists to pluck in tranquil solitude, a piano room summons strummers, and a sound-reinforced drum room with two kits creates a perfect percussion palace and an ideal place to practice eating with drumsticks. While waiting for lessons to begin, students can relax, collaborate, or silently air jam in the school's comfortable, couch-adorned lobby.
