Playeum runs high-touch STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) programmes for at-risk children. Playeum's specially crafted STEAM workshops incorporate it's very own pedagogy and aims to help at-risk children with low academic achievements increase their confidence levels, resilience, skills, innovation as well as their social and emotional learning.

With these intervention programmes tailored to children from at-risk backgrounds, Playeum looks to break the cycles that hold them back by striving for long term impact and inspiring children to take charge of their own circumstances and be able to meet their fullest potential. Through open-ended play, children become masters of their own worlds, where creating, exploring, conquering fears, negotiating, making decisions and resolving conflicts become second nature.

The programme includes learning to code, applying coding on Sphero robots, and using morse code and spin art kids to explore connections. One of the participants, Aniq said, "I get bored in school because all the teachers try to make us become more interested in the topic by talking, but if the teaching method could be more like this, we will be keen to learn". When asked what else he learned at this week at the workshop, he shared, "I learned to help other people that are in need."

About the Charity

Playeum is an independent charity organisation (IPC) that creates equal opportunities for children in Singapore to develop creativity and confidence through play and the arts. In particular, we work with children from marginalised backgrounds and children with varying disabiities.

We hold safe and non-judgemental spaces for children to have a voice and be heard, as well as to build 21st century life skills such as critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. Through this, children are empowered to thrive and be the best versions of themselves.

Our work also supports adults in becoming powerful creative facilitators for children as we shift mindsets to seeing children as creative and competent. Over the past year, we have reached out to more than 2,200 children and adults through our impact work. We work with parents, social workers, volunteers and educators.

Support our cause with a donation here today. Your support enables our work with children, to level the playing field.

Every donation dollar will be matched 1-for-1 through the National Arts Council Cultural Matching Fund.
