Research has shown the tremendous benefits of learning chess. As a learning tool, chess produces remarkable improvement in children’s life skills in areas as diverse as creativity and literacy, even verbal aptitude! So compelling are the results of controlled studies, that chess is included in the curricula in many countries, and as a curricular or extracurricular subject in hundreds of Australian schools.

Instructional gaming is one of the most effective learning methods. Children love games and will spend hours over a chessboard, willingly practicing logical thinking, problem solving and action/consequence analysis. It is an extremely efficient and cost effective learning tool that children find fun.
