Playeum- art & craft & learning activities
Join the learning activities for kids
The Children’s Centre for Creativity is operated by Playeum Ltd, an independent registered charity that champions children through play & creativity. Playeum Ltd is a registered charity and recognized Institution of Public Character (IPC). Playeum works closely with various learning academicians and in particular, Dr. Barbara Pitscitelli, AM, a leading Arts & Education Advisor, to better understand children’s engagement in authentic play experiences. The environments and activities within the Children’s Centre for Creativity and for all of Playeum’s activities, have been carefully designed to encourage open-ended, exploratory learning and play. Its pedagogy most closely aligns with Reggio Emilia. This approach may be summarised as child-centred, with a focus on meaningful environments, the use of adult facilitators (not teachers) and carefully considered provocations to nurture and ignite children’s ideas and activities. Art and other ‘languages’ of expression are an integrated part of the children’s learning. Similarly, at the Children’s Centre for Creativity, there is a high level of artist involvement. Playeum is also an advocate and promoter of the voice and rights of children. We see children as authentic cultural citizens. Our Children’s Advisory Board provides a forum for children to take ownership of specific projects and to shape their direction.
