  • Started Sept 13
  • 400 Canadian dollars
  • JICS - TBD

Service Description

We aim to blend the sheer enjoyment of the game with the many benefits that it provides. It is well known that chess can improve strategic thinking, focus, pattern recognition and problem-solving skills. But our programs, filled with challenging riddles and game play, tap into this and add much more – from game analysis that focusses on turning mistakes into lessons, to winning and losing with grace, and to nudging the players to take initiative and evaluate choices, Extra Ed chess programs teach much more than the game. Extra Ed started out in 2015 teaching financial literacy programs in a handful of elementary, middle, and high schools in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). We have since grown into an organization that offers a full suite of educational services - from in-class enrichment programming, to lunch and after school clubs, to camps, and even tutoring and special interest learning. Pick-up: School Playground 2:45 – 3:00pm. Dates: Sept 13 – Nov 29, 2023. Sept 13, Sept 20, Sept 27, Oct 4, Oct 11, Oct 18, Oct 25, Nov 1, Nov 8 , Nov 15, Nov 22, Nov 29.
