Chess in Kindergarden

Chess4kids is specialized in working with children from 2-3 years and older. Our youngest student is 3 years old. With our modern, playful methodology and our experienced trainers we are able to inspire even our youngest ones to learn about chess. We for example have a feel memory that we have designed and use for kindergarden classes. Or we handcraft some chess pieces with paper etc. and explain the character of the pieces while working on the piece. Through that chess is not an intellectual game for the older ones but an exciting adventure also for the young ones.

Our offer for Kindergarden Chess:

  • Chess and art (chess pieces out of clay, paper, Fimo etc.)
  • Chess and Sweat (we combine chess and movement/sports activities)
  • Chess for highly talented children
  • small or longer chess projects (daily to semester projects)
  • Usage of exciting chess pieces and small games with reduced complexity

Chess in Schools

Chess4kids is a chess school, mainly for children in the Zurich, Zug and Baden area. Besides chess classes in our own course centers we offer projects and classes for schools and kindergarden.

What do we offer and how can we implement chess in your school?

At Chess4kids we use a modern approach of teaching chess with lots of fun and creativity. Besides teaching chess with a regular chess board and chess pieces our children can play the role of the chess pieces in a living chess situation and feel the quality of the chess piece and learn with all senses what it is about.

We offer a wide selection of chess teaching that can be used as enrichment in your daily school program:

Chess during regular school lessons:

  • Chess as school lesson with regular classes and periodical test and certificates (we deliver all material for the children and teacher), i.e. as afternoon class
  • Chess instead mathematics (some schools replace one math lesson by one chess lesson per week)
  • Chess and art (we can implement chess projects in art classes, i.e. create chess sets out of clay, fimo etc. or carve chess pieces out of soap stone)
  • Chess and sports (we organize different exercise areas where we combine exercise with chess activities)
  • Chess for highly talented children
  • short or longer chess projects (from daily to semester projects, we adapt to your needs)
