Chess4kids offers high quality chess training that is build up systematically by levels that are defined by age and experience. To enhance learning opportunities for all children by recognising each child’s unique individuality, academic, social and cultural strengths and interests.
Our Training Concept
In our training concept the kids are guided through different training phases and levels. Depending on the age and experience, the kids enter the MINIMASTER or MAXIMASTER Level.
Through our journey of teaching we developed a playful program that fosters children starting from 2 years on. Many studies show the profound benefits of chess and the effectiveness of learning through play like instill confidence, sharpen critical thinking, boost emotional intelligence, enhance arithmetic skills and strengthen academic performance.
This innovative MINIMASTER program includes a huge variety of behavioral and interest based activities. During the classes we offer a stimulating and widespread learning enviroment with many sensory and movement related exercises and games. With this specially designed program we cover every aspect of your child’s development, from social interaction to physical activity to cognitive learning through play. Through that the children develop the confidence, creativity, curiosity and learning skills.
Our lessons offer a safe, fun and nurturing environment and include interactive moments, physical movements (like chessercizes as combinations of psychomotorical exercises and chess), storytelling and guidelines for game play at each level of development.
Our MINIMASTER program consists of 2 levels: prelevel 1 and prelevel 2. Through that we can focus on the development areas of each defined age group. Since we work in small groups with experienced teachers, each child can grow on its individual pace.
The classes are designed in 6-month increments.
Our Maximaster Concept is for kids starting with about 6 years on. Here we have 2 levels: the Maximaster Basic Level and the Maximaster Master Level. On each level we have 6 steps, which follow a specificly defined training content. Each of those steps finishes with a test and diploma at the end of the semester.
