We are excited to announce we have started teaching chess! We have partnered with The Knight School. They are offering our preschoolers their Little Geniuses program.
It’s only for kids ages 3-5. Little Geniuses comes one day a week, and puts on a high-energy 45-minute chess practice. Our kids will play for Mardi Gras beads, and silicone wristbands. Check out The Knight School YouTube page.
Our kidos have told us it is WAAY more fun than it should be. And each student gets their own chess board and chess pieces.
I have always enjoyed playing chess, and it has been proven that chess improves concentration and memory. A study done at the University of Memphis has shown that playing chess improves children’s visual memory, attention span and spatial reasoning ability. Other studies have shown it fosters critical thinking and creativity by having youngsters think al all possible moves.
