All our activities are a way for parents to get involved with their kids in arts-related activities. Studies show that creative activities are imperative in early child development.

Gateway Kids Club gets you and your child engaged in arts-related activities that are not only fun but also feed the imaginative creator hidden within!

Each month features a different theme, around which activities are focused.

Recommended for children 3 to 7 years old.

What We Believe

In the early childhood years between 3 to 7 years old, kids have a large capacity to develop their creativity and grow their imagination through various positive artistic stimulations. Studies show that children after the age of 6 will multi-task their modes of learning due to the pressures of formal schooling, therefore their capacity to imagine and create is much greater before reaching this age!

More and more Singaporean parents are introducing their children to the arts through weekend art workshops, theatre plays or musicals for young people, as well as enrolling their children in music lessons. Gateway Kids Club provides another option for parents to introduce their kids to activities that are centred around visual arts, performing arts, music and dance.

More Great Reasons to Join

Arts to Enrich Young Minds

Children develop a variety of skills from participating in arts-related activities regularly.

Motor skills, especially in making arts and crafts.

Language appreciation, in listening and participating in storytelling.

Listening, improving a child’s attention span when listening to stories, as well as active listening when taking instructions.

Empathy, appreciating other people or animals through their stories.

Visual appreciation, when drawing and making crafts; developing graphic cues and understanding symbols.

Problem-solving & critical-thinking, as applied in craft-making or free play interactive games.

Inventiveness, when expressing themselves during the storytelling or craft-making sessions.

Great Family Time


Parents and children can play together, interact when making crafts together or share in an experience through the storytelling sessions. Parents talk about the story at home, sing the songs and do the actions that were shared at the storytelling session. They can also use the skills they’ve learnt making crafts to create their own play at home too.

ACT 3 Theatrics

Stepping into the fourth decade as Singapore’s first professional theatre company, Act 3 Theatrics’s focus continues to be children. Where once the professionals were the creators and enactors, today, Act 3 Theatrics endeavours to be the catalyst to inspire children in their hands-on quest to learn, explore, experiment, create, articulate and present.
