Chess Mates Kids Playing Chess

Do you want to give your child their best possible start? As parents, we want the best for our children.

We want them to be happy, healthy, and to have a head-start on life. We want to see them surrounded by friends, having fun, and finding joy in learning. Put simply, we want our children to develop into intelligent, well-rounded human beings.

Which is why chess classes for kids are such a great investment for your child’s future.

Why Chess For Toddlers & Kids?!

Studies have shown that up to 80% of kids’cognitive development takes place in the first five years of their life. That means that to maximise your child’s potential, you need to start young. Chess is the perfect way to do this.

The Benefits Of Chess!

It’s been shown that learning to play chess from age 3 can improve a child’s overall performance at school by nearly 20% compared to children who have not learnt chess. In other words, learning chess helps your child to leap ahead of their peers at school.

Chess classes help your child improve their attention span, develop emotional intelligence, make friends, prepare to start school, and have fun… all at the same time.

Doesn’t your child deserve that sort of head-start? To learn more about the specific benefits of chess classes for kids, read our “Why Chess?” page

How We Teach Chess For Kids

Leasp to Success Kids Chess Classes

At Chess Mates, we teach chess classes for kids aged 2 to 10 in Brisbane and south-east Queensland.

Your child is taught in a fun and engaging environment, with creative storytelling, songs, and physical movement. For older children, we focus on teaching chess with storytelling, chess puzzles, and games of chess. We also teach planning skills as they learn to think one step ahead, and use the technology they are familiar and comfortable with to aid in their learning.

Chess Mates chess classes are about learning, not just facilitating games of chess. Nor do we focus on winning. Instead, we teach about winning and losing in a supportive environment, so your child can learn to deal with both situations emotionally. We focus on how chess can be fun and help your child make new friends.
