WizKids Academy Chess Program

Research shows that young children can be taught to think clearly through chess and that learning these skills early in life can greatly benefit later intellectual development. We start introducing chess to our children at about 4 years old. Our Kindergarten team won the 1st place in New Jersey State Championship in November 2016.
