Who Are We

We are a team of dedicated moms and chess coaches who see the benefits of learning chess during formative school years. Therefore, we are passionate to introduce as well as spread the enthusiasm for chess across all school-aged children. Chess is considered as a great pass-time. But, besides that, it also improves a child’s cognitive skills. Additionally, it also enhances confidence, attention span, memory capacity, problem-solving skills etc.


Clearly, 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 found this program where your child will be spending quality time learning this excellent game by experienced chess coaches. Besides knowledge and entertainment these chess coaches will also improve their overall academic performance over the time.
