What We Offer

The reviews are in!

Hugh Jackman
"Chess at Three has our two children playing and loving chess! We're proud to have it in our home, and think every child should be learning Chess at Three."
Jennifer Shahade
“I’m a two-time US women’s chess champion, but I’m also the mom of a four-year-old boy who loves chess and he likes the [Chess at Three] classes a lot too, which really surprised me.
I highly recommend it..."
Wesley So
“I really like the curriculum! Teaching kids to recognize patterns, understand action and consequence as early as age three is valuable training whether they go on to play chess or not. I started at age 6, but if I'd had the opportunity, I would have started younger. It should be available to children everywhere.”
