Description: Chess is a great educational tool that improves focus, develops creativity, builds resilience and confidence, and helps a child to remain calm, and think rationally under pressure. It also helps children realize the consequence of their actions. Chess is not always about winning. Sometimes it’s simply about learning and so is life. Chess without stress class is to teach chess in a fun and interactive way to anyone who is ready to learn it without forgoing the intricacies and the beauty within it. The goal is to provide our students a deep understanding of this beautiful mind game of chess, and to provide an outlet for your child’s creative and critical thinking.
