About The Children’s Centre for Creativity
Playeum is a non-profit, independent organisation and IPC charity that champions the development of children through play and creativity, using the arts, and concepts of STEM (science technology engineering and maths) in our play-based approaches.
Playeum uses open-ended play approach to develop 21st century skills in children, namely; creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and problem solving.
Playeum runs the Children’s Centre for Creativity currently located at the serene naturistic setting of Gillman Barracks. ALL children are welcomed to this centre for creativity. Children from marginalised backgrounds come for free through the play-it-forward fund set aside. Playeum also runs high-touch programmes for children, where we work closely with children from our community partners in the social sector.
Other areas of focus include our work and training with teachers and educators through our Inspire through Play and Learning through Play programmes (ECDA endorsed course for pre-schools). Through Leading through Play, we conduct retreats for teachers and schools who want to be open and develop experiences in using play as an approach to discovery and learning. Playeum also does outreach to the community, bringing Playeum’s creative play to other parts of Singapore, space design for schools or settings where a creative makerspace, innovation space or play space can be created to allow children to express their creativity and skills, and finally research, where we document our impact of the work we do.
