SchoolHouse Chess FAQs for Schools

What is the After School Program?

  • SchoolHouse Chess of Windsor’s After School Program brings the timeless game of chess to elementary students in a fun and engaging way that they are sure to love!  Six week programs available.
  • We rent the classrooms, fully train and background check our staff and make the program easy for you to host at your school.
  • We take care of the equipment, materials and clean-up!

 

What do schools need to do?

  • Allow us to visit with your students for a School Kick-off Assembly or Roaming Chess King or Queen. As part of the registration process, SchoolHouse Chess will provide a Roaming Chess King or Queen to visit each class (Grades 2 – 6) for a 6-8 minute presentation.
  • Ask teachers to share their classrooms with a trained SchoolHouse Chess Instructor for one hour a week, for six weeks. Teachers can even remain in their classrooms during the program!
  • Help promote the program by reminding students of deadlines. Parents pay tuition, so there is no cost to the school. The program fee is $82.00 including HST per child for 6 weeks and includes materials, a cool magnetic chess set, a certificate and a T-shirt.

What will SchoolHouse Chess provide to schools? 

  • All administration and payments handled by SchoolHouse Chess. No extra work for your staff!
