NYChessKids offers Chess programs to youngest beginners (some as young as 3 1/2 to 4 years old) and slightly older beginners and intermediate players, to advanced players. Students take part in chess-related tasks like puzzle solving, lessons on demo boards and analysis sessions.


Our Chess Programs are dedicated to improving academic excellence by encouraging and training our students to become problem solvers and critical thinkers. We pledge to offer and provide only the best for our students.
