Turkish Chess Federation and I’m Growing up with Chess Club, with the financial contribution of Spor Toto Administration, have initiated a project that will establish chess corners in 1000 kindergartens across Turkey, introducing pupils in these kindergartens with chess materials and providing professional chess education to teachers in order to disseminate chess in kindergartens in 2015-2016 academic term.



The project will be first initiated in regional centres such as Ankara, Denizli, Diyarbakır, Erzurum, Gaziantep, İstanbul, İzmir, Kayseri, Kocaeli, Mersin, Ordu and Sivas, then will be put into practice in other provinces in the upcoming years.



Before the initiation of this project, in order to provide information about different chess teaching methods in Turkey and abroad; compare and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of teaching methods and eventually creating an example teaching method through mutual exchange of ideas, Turkish Chess Federation and I’m Growing up with Chess Club with the financial support of Republic of Turkey Promotion Fund, will organize a workshop entitled “International Level Comparison of Chess Education Models for Preschool level”. The workshop will take place on 13-14 June 2015 at Meyra Palace Hotel in Ankara.

The workshop will convey different educational models from different parts of the world and from Turkey to the participants. The participants, who are determined by representatives from provinces in which the project will be conducted and people who have been working for the development of Chess in Turkey for long years, will have the opportunity to listen the experts and ask questions on the first day of the workshop. On the second day, the experts and participants will work together on the topics that are specified beforehand. In this respect, all participants will have the opportunity to express their ideas and reflect on their questions more effectively.
