High Touch Programme
Playeum creates high-touch programmes that target the development of creativity, confidence, language/communication and social-emotional learning for children from at-risk backgrounds.
These programmes take place over a span of 2 to 6 months and are funded by various individuals, organisations and foundations. We've been generously supported by partners such as Sage Foundation, Quantedge Foundation, Salesforce, Binjai Tree Foundation, Lee Foundation, the National Council of Social Services (NCSS), individual donors and more.
Working with our social service organisation partners, these tailored programmes (using STEAM* with a play- and arts-based approach) are specially for children from at-risk backgrounds - whether due to poverty, single parenthood, low parental education levels, parental incarceration, or living in a community with a high crime rate.
These programmes aim to build resilience, communication and motivation in learning. It is our goal to level the playing field, break vicious cycles and strive for long term impact by inspiring children to build confidence, take charge of their own circumstances and meet their fullest potential.
*STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics
It’s the little things – I mean, it's their reactions. When you look at their reactions (with their development), how excited they are... so you know that the goal has been achieved. They are having a good time with Playeum, because I think the playmakers make a difference.
