At the Children's Centre for Creativity, children are active

citizens of the world.


It is a space where all children have equal access to play, 

regardless of abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.

Playeum opened Singapore's first locally grown non-profit Children's Centre for Creativity on 19 September 2015 at Gillman Barracks. Its visions and mission embrace a commitment to the value of play, the arts and creativity in the lives of young children aged 1 to 12. 


The Centre presents themed hands-on exhibitions that change once a year and is open to ALL families, schools & student cares, social service organisations and corporates, to visit and explore.
