What parents are saying...

My daughter had no prior chess experience and immediately fell in love by going through Chess At Three's storytelling style of teaching at the trial class. Now the chess club becomes her favorite class after the school and she can't wait to play with the next character when it is introduced... Definitely highly recommend it!

My 5 year old has been hooked since meeting the Chess team during their soft opening... [The Staff] and tutors and all of the Chess at Three team have been incredibly welcoming, kind and patient with our budding chess player. Can't wait to keep up with the classes and see him develop his skills in the months to come. Couldn't recommend Chess at Three more!

Thanks for hosting a great week of summer camp. Coco seriously had the best time! She is obsessed with Birchguard Quest and I'd love for her to take one of your classes in the fall. I'd also be interested to send her back in August for another camp!
