Chess At Three gets kids playing and loving chess through storytelling, starting at the surprising age of 3.

Chess at Three tells stories that transform the chess pieces into a memorable cast of characters. These characters have quirky qualities that help children understand how the chess pieces move.

Every Chess at Three lesson has a fun story that introduces children to important themes that go far beyond chess. Chess at Three students learn about sportsmanship, grit, and math, all through stories.

Chess at Three has certified tutors that bring our fun story filled lessons right to your home in: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Hong Kong. Click here to get a Chess at Three tutor in your home or school.
