Chess At Three students also learn: The Importance of Sportsmanship, Literacy, Chess History, and Math, just to name a few. Lessons include interactive moments, physical movements (chessercizes), and guidelines for game play at each level of development. Chess at Three utilizes a unique cast of characters, in fun and interactive stories. Through these stories children progressively learn to play and develop a love for 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.

The course covers brand new topics such as: exploring non-Newtonian substances that change state with pressure and investigating the properties of crazy potions, helping to demonstrate chemical reactions. Along the way, children learn about the Scientific Method using a controlled variable and study the method of the design thinking process. Families receive a weekly recap note, that highlight key learning points, to help keep track of how their scientists are progressing.
