If you want your children to learn chess, you’ve come to the right place. My advice might not be what you expect, though.

Across the globe, most chess educators specialising in teaching beginners agree that the best way to introduce chess to young children is through MINICHESS: activities using subsets of the game and rules.

When children are ready they will, if they choose, be able to play a full game of chess.

Look at some of the MINICHESS activities here, learn them yourself, teach them to your children, and then the whole family can have fun playing together.
