Playeum creates social impact through outreach, education, and research.
One Year at a Glance
In collaboration with primary schools and social service agencies, we design and execute a play and STEAM-based programme for latchkey students and children from marginalised backgrounds to develop their confidence, school motivation, and interest in science and technology.
In the last one year, more than 95 children from South Central Community Family Service Centre, Clementi Primary School, MSF Community Link (Kembangan-Chai Chee), Sunbeam Place @ Singapore Children's Society and Campus Impact have benefitted from this initiative.
Playeum at Home
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, we responded to the immediate need for children to have more opportunities to play and develop resilience while being forced to stay home.
Playeum At Home is a series of virtual play sessions that encourages children to take charge and discover different ways of experimenting and creating with everyday recyclable materials.
We collaborated with local non-profit arts organisation 3Pumpkins, Singapore Repertory Theatre, as well as artists Isabelle Desjeux and Ranae Lee-Nasir in some of these sessions.
By empowering adults, we can level the playing field for every child.
Our ECDA-endorsed course Learning Through Play, led by arts-education researcher Dr. Esther Joosa, inspires preschool teachers in Singapore to use play as a medium to connect, learn and create with children.
We have also worked with educators in pre and primary schools and with organisations such as the Association for Early Childhood Educators (Singapore) and Metta Preschool on training and facilitation of programmes.
What They Say About Us
Mrs Z., Student Management
Local Primary School
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.
