Who Are We

Our Mission

We are a team of dedicated moms and a chess coach who see the benefits of learning chess during formative school years and are passionate to introduce and spread the enthusiasm for chess across all school-aged children. Being moms of school-aged kids, we are very mindful of the time and activities that our kids engage in during after-school hours. Hence, we founded this program where your child will be spending quality time learning an excellent game that will not only provide them with knowledge and entertainment but will also improve their overall academic performance over time.
