We are a professional childcare company which has been operational for over 20 years. Our experience in childcare can't be beaten. We always have young people who are energetic and fun on our team who are CRB certified as well as experienced playworkers who have a high level qualification in Playwork or Early Years. Don't think of us as people who simply watch children play though, many of our staff members do unique things to help the children raise their understanding of the world, expand their vocabulary and teach them the values of kindness, patience and knowledge.

The company was founded by Joy Bassett and Andrew Bowes in 1990 where it was originally named Bromley Out Of School Club and has developed over many years into the club that many children know and love. As the company grew to have clubs at multiple sites, managers were hired to train staff and take on the important work of childcare.

Chucklebox has been awarded ratings from 'good' to 'outstanding' by OFSTED, the governing authority in childcare and education. Chucklebox children have often participated spectacular dance performances in musicals such as 'Mary Poppins' and 'Joseph and His Dream Coat' among other things. Each manager has a level 3+ Qualification awarded in Playwork. Each deputy has a level 2+ Qualification awarded in Playwork. All senior staff are first aid qualified. Some of our childcare staff also have various certificates in working with children with additional needs, behaviour management, EYFS, safe guarding children either level 2 & 3.


Our varied programme always offers a variety of inspirational, educational and fun activities for your children. We incorporate Sports & Games, Arts and Crafts , special guests, day and half day trips and many many more.
