Early Years Skills (EYS) is brought to you by FIDE in association with Alfiere Bianco and the Erasmus+ CASTLE project.
EYS uses psychomotor development classes on a giant chessboard. Children are the central figures in developmental game playing, developing their sensory-motor capacity by requiring the use of active intelligence in a social setting.
The lessons take place in an exclusive and protected space: the GIANT chessboard. Experience shows that this becomes a magical experience for kids – a bridge between reality and imagination.
Carefully structured game activities heighten children’s self-esteem as well as providing a unique opportunity to build relationships with companions based on loyalty, responsibility and partnership.
The 52 videos at eys.fide.com show EYS in practice.
