  • Why should children learn chess?

    • CRITICAL THINKING

      Chess develops analytical, synthetic and decision-making skills that can be applied to real life.

    • CONFIDENCE

      Chess encourages children learn to focus, plan, and persevere through challenges, building self-confidence.

    • COMPETITION

      Chess enables the child to gain insights into the nature of competition which will help them in any competitive endeavor.

    • Kid Chess is a wonderful organization that offers tailored chess programs for kids in schools as well as online. […] This year, with Covid-19, I have been impressed at how quickly Kid Chess adapted the Kid Chess After School Program into an online chess activity. My son was able to play every day online for up to two hours with other kids. […] If your kid likes chess, I highly recommend Kid Chess. The team is extremely well organized, creative, fun, and they care about kids.

    • My son loves kid chess! The online program that they put into place after schools closed kept him practicing and challenging other players.

    • My daughter took your class last year. I do plan to sign her up again, but I also wanted to let you know what wonderful teachers you had there last year. They were wonderful and so patient with all the kids. They kept the class focused and on track. Even though the class was a good size, and they only met once a week, I could tell when they gave out trophies that they really had taken the time to know each child.

    • I just wanted to let you know how awesome Kid Chess is and how much our daughter has LOVED it this year. She started in January as a novice first grade player at school and then attended the camp at Findley Oaks this summer. She plans to continue in second grade this year — she absolutely loves Coach Keith and Coach AJ.

      Thanks for offering this awesome program.

    • Our son LOVED the program last year. He attended the second session both semesters. We really saw improvement in his game and thought process by the end of the year. Coach Lee is awesome and so very patient with the students. He is very knowledgeable about chess and I appreciate that he guides younger players to “a better move” and explains a wrong move. We have already registered for this year. He is ready and waiting to begin.

    • Thank you for all the generous donations you’ve made this year to my committee. You’re a wonderful Partner in Education but you’re also a wonderful parent who truly supports our school. And I don’t just mean by making monetary donations. I’ve seen you and your family at many school events and you’re always willing to come out and play chess with the students. You’ve helped make Mountain View a better school and I appreciate everything you’ve done so much!

    • We want to thank you for the outstanding presentation of chess to our Target students. Not only were our “experts” challenged, you kindled an interest in the game in some of the reluctant beginners. Mt. Bethel benefits greatly by having your chess program. Again, a sincere thank you.
