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.
