SUMMER CAMPS IN TRIVANDRUM – 2017

YIPPEE! Holidays are here. And a whole two months too! But we know how kids can be. Unless you keep them engaged, you are asking for trouble. Let schoolkutti.com help you with a wide range of summer camps happening all across our city. Areas include dance, arts, crafts, and social and intellectual skills.

Chess and Mind Games

Self confidence and a vast memory power – if you have the combo, then you’re a winner. When you play Chess you gain them all. As parents we may tend to act as helicopters. We hover a lot. We jump in, we put words in our children’s mouth. We think for them. We act for them. We talk for them. Well, they have to fly away from our nests some day, haven’t they? So, help them be independent. Chess makes them thinkers–critical thinkers. Problem solvers–patient problem solvers. There is nothing that works out your brain as rigorously as Chess does.

At Capablanca Chess School, top Chess Instructors provide great lessons on chess, and kids can learn and play in a fun-filled environment as well. Sessions include competitive play too. Yoga and concentration sessions, exclusive chess library, and transportation facility across Thiruvananthapuram city are the valuable services one can enjoy associating with Capablanca Chess School.
