As parents, it’s always satisfying to enroll our children in healthy competitive programs and Seneca Hill Chess has exceeded our expectations.  It has been a blessing not only for our three children, Micah, Nathan, and Janelle to learn logical and creative thinking and help them excel at their primary school clubs but also for us as parents to see them adopt a hobby that they can play together.  This program is so well run and the top-notch teachers know how to harmonize play with learning.  For all three of them to coincidentally win in their age-specific Swiss Round tournament was a real bonus and will go down as one of our special memories. ~Jason
