Park Slope Parents | Parent
My son loved the small group learning and creative thinking/story-based play. The team of tutors were incredible and we had such a great experience. Will definitely do it again next summer and will be doing sessions during the year as well!
Michelle | Parent
My son started coming to the club for Chess, but has become completely obsessed with Birchguard Quest! All he talks about is his character he made and the stories he and his new friends have been making in class. I won't say he was ever shy, but he has come out of his shell around his new classmates in a way I never would have thought possible. A fantastic class to give kids a team experience off screen.

[My daughter] has been going to Bea & Bop weekday playgroup for several months and it is a highlight of her week! [She] has been introduced to the Chesslandia world and we’re excited to graduate to the chess program some time soon. Would highly recommend this location and the Playgroup as an activity for toddlers!
