We believe that chess is ideal for developing learning skills in school aged children. We not only teach chess but we do so inclusively and in a way that is compatible with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals particularly, Goals 4 and 10.
We offer structured chess lessons in person and online focusing on developing learning skills in school aged children. Such skills include improving concentration, memory, analysis, reading and writing, critical thinking, and mental calculation, patience and social skills. We also organise chess tournaments.
