Why Chess Mates for the holidays?

With trivia and games, Chess Mates consider their fun Holiday Programs not only exciting but engaging for children as well.

Their team of childcare and Prep – Year 6 educators care deeply for the development of students and are well-versed in fun stories, songs, and games to teach students that chess is more than just a competition.

Chess Mates understands that children want to have fun and wish to follow their curiosity. At Chess Mates, chess is not just a competition, but a game that allows for forward thinking, and humility whether win or lose.

Who is Chess Mates?

Chess Mates’ director, Ash Reddy was unsatisfied with the unnecessary competitiveness being taught to children all throughout Australia, and as such, Chess Mates was born in 2012.

There are over thirty passionate Chess Mates educators spread over the Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba regions, and they have formed close ties to the communities and schools Chess Mates teach in. They have run successful holiday programs in the past and love offering an alternate program where kids are able to have fun, play games, grow their curiosity and make friends.

Chess Mates is the evolution of chess teaching. It uses chess as the teaching tool, not as the end game. Because of this, Chess Mates have created a community of like-minded parents who understand the benefits of chess, but who value the opportunity it brings for helping children reach their potential.

Christmas School Holiday Program 2019

For the first time, Chess Mates are offering vacation care before and after their Christmas 2019 holiday program at Nundah State School. Dropoff starts at 7AM and pickup ends at 5PM.

The Chess Mates December Holiday program will be an amazing 3 days of chess fun. Anyone can join in the fun from those who know nothing about chess to those who have their own ratings. Participants will be going through puzzle work, openings, endgames and other chess strategies.

There will be breaks for little and big lunch!

Business Kids – December 2019
