ABOUT US

TO PREPARE THEM
FOR TOMORROW

We are a chess organization dedicated to providing core development  and enriching programs through chess. Taught by experienced and nationally recognized chess masters, who share and infuse kids with a passion for the game. Our instructors have themselves played at the scholastic level and are able to share personal experiences with the new generation.

Chess & Kids is dedicated to providing an intellectually stimulating platform to kids of all ages and income levels. Countless studies have shown chess to be a great academic tool:  helping kids learn better, think faster and concentrate longer. Kids with special needs such as autism and ADD and HDHD have shown remarkable ability to concentrate during the game, unlike in any other activity. Needham Chess Kids is the first non-profit organization of its kind in MA. Our students successfully participate in local and National tournaments, win awards such as trophies and medals, but most importantly build real life skills and boost confidence.  One of our goals is to make sure kids use chess as a tool to perform better academically, socially and go on to college.
