About Story Time Chess
Story Time Chess gets kids playing and loving chess through storytelling, starting at the surprising age of three. We have been working to equip children with learning tools and life skills since 2006.
From tutoring chess in-home and in schools to releasing our innovative board game, our approach and cast of characters have been on the forefront of early childhood chess education.
Live classes taught by fun, engaging tutors
We utilize a unique cast of characters, in fun and interactive stories; children progressively learn to play chess. Our stories focus on why chess pieces move in their own unique ways and are supported by activities that cement chess knowledge in your child’s mind.
