One is never too young to start learning chess. In fact former U.S. Secretary of Education Terrell Bell encourages knowledge of chess as a way to develop a preschoolers intellect and academic readiness.

If one thinks about it, Chess, is the ideal learning tool for young children. They can touch and feel the pieces, get to associate names with shapes, learn different moves and also where each piece goes. They also learn rules and how to apply them.

In addition, on a more complex level they learn to plan, execute these plans and face the consequences of these plans. They also develop their spatial awareness and abstract thinking and learn how to apply their minds when required. The handling of winning and loosing develops maturity.
