It is a fact that children who play chess develop earlier than those who do not. They learn to analyse and think from a very early age. The evidence was given by the “Olympus Plus School” under the patronage of FIDE, where chess is a part of the obligatory curriculum.

One of the best gifts we can give our children is the gift of their future success. By playing chess, your child will develop, in a most pleasant way, not only independent thinking, but also self-discipline, responsibility, and willpower to attain his/her goal. Encourage your children to play chess. It will not only be pleasant and emotionally satisfying to them, but it will also be an excellent training for the development of the personality to its fullest capacity.
