About Us

Founded in 2009, Playeum is an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) charity in Singapore that focuses on amplifying the voices and abilities of all children, especially children from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special needs.

Through play and the arts, we create a safe space and equal opportunities for children to develop life skills and the foundations they need to thrive - confidence, resilience and creativity to lead their lives and make meaningful contributions. Many of the children we serve would have otherwise missed out on the benefits due to financial barriers and limiting circumstances at home.

Over the last 5 years, we partner communities, schools and social service agencies to impact more than 62,000 children and their adults.

Our Programmes

Playeum creates impact through outreach, education, and research. We bring communities, civil society, governments, businesses and donors together to achieve sustainable impact with children. We believe this is the best way that we can effect real change in the way our society views children.

1. Social impact Programmes

In a world of inclusiveness and active participation, every child from every socioeconomic background can have the same opportunities to play, create and have their voice heard. We partner schools and social service agencies to conduct play intervention programmes to help children from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special needs develop life skills using the power of autonomous play.

2. Adult Education

Through our ECDA-endorsed course Learning Through Play, training programmes, and learning journeys, we inspire and empower adults on how to facilitate meaningful play with children.

3. Public Outreach Programmes

We bring open-ended artful play into the community through in-person and digital play sessions, workshops, and project collaborations.

4. Research and Advocacy

We invest in ongoing effort to develop practice-based research and evaluation of practices to better understand children's engagement and development in authentic play experiences and their impact.
