Playeum Ltd

Playeum is an Institute of Public Character (IPC) Charity in Singapore that works with children in developing life skills; confidence, creativity, resilience, using open-ended play and the arts. The approach is child-led; creating safe spaces for the child to ideate, create and problem solve. It is not instructive but open-ended and through our lens of seeing children as creative and competent, we allow for a child’s strengths and abilities to be seen and developed.

We work with all children especially those from marginalised communities and those with varying disabilities.

We also work with the adults that engage with the children – sharing of the approach to teach and learn through open-ended play using recycled everyday materials.
