Children can learn chess very early, some even as early as three years old! The key is to teach them in a young child-oriented way, instead of relying on standard methods for adult learners or for youth school children.
Chess for young kids should not be seen as a myth invented by parents, but a great chance to develop children in a social, as well as academic way, while having a lot of fun together!
At MCA we do just that! Our beginners group is loud and fun with many treats in the end!
