Bush Inventors' Club - Crawley
Bush Inventors’ Club is a space where primary aged children can experiment, create and play with natural resources in a fun after school activity.
Nature Educators and Nature Playworkers lead the clubs. They are passionate about allowing freedom of play. Opportunities are provided to learn new skills such as carpentry and knot tying as well as playing nature connection games.
A major part of the club is developing self-risk assessment skills, allowing risk taking with support in identifying hazards and body awareness.
The theme for this term at Bush Inventors’ Club is PLAY. Play is a vital component of childhood development. There is an abundance of research highlighting how play facilitates the development of language, social skills, creativity, physical capabilities, and more. Although seemingly simple, play is surprisingly complex with opportunities for intrinsically motivated rich learning.
It’s no secret that Educated by Nature is big on play – in fact, it’s one of our guiding values for learning within nature. This term is about making space to meet the play needs of children. Resources will be available to extend children’s play and will be catered to the interests of the group. Mentors will work alongside children to provide support and extend play exploration and participation. Term three is a wonderful opportunity for fun and friendship in the outdoors!

Please note, children must have turned 6 to attend Bush Inventors' Club.
