Our Story

Chess4kids was founded in 2010 by Bea Johner. Her son was diagnosed with ADHD and she was looking for an alternative to classic treatment like Ritalin to support his development. So she started with the first branch in Zollikon and step by step a new interactive and fun methodology was developed for Kids 4 years up.


We offer fun and interactive chess classes for kids 4 years up. We have beginner, intermediate and advanced classes. Our course centers are in Küsnacht, Horgen, Zürich-Wollishofen, Zürich-Oerlikon, Baden and Zug.


Chess4kids offers regularly body & brain vacation camps for kids 5 years up. We offer half- and full day camps at all our 6 locations for beginner and advanced. Pre- and late care bookable.


Do you want to celebrate your birthday while learning something exciting together with your friends? Chess4kids offers cool birthday parties at our locations for kids 4 years up. Come and enjoy our interactive game party. Our home made chess cake will round up your exciting afternoon.


Have you always wanted to learn chess but don’t have time to come to our classrooms? Or do you want to improve your chess level? Chess4kids offers online chess courses for children aged 5 to 15 years, which are led by experienced, competent trainers.
