Help with childcare costs

Early Education Funding (EEF)

Every child is eligible for the Universal 15 hours of EEF in the term after their 3rd birthday.


We do offer Childcare for Working Parents 15 hours of EEF up to 51 weeks per year and parents of 3 and 4 year olds who are eligible can claim both Universal and CWP. This funding will be 'stretched' and not term time only. Sessions are subject to availability and eligibility. Terms and conditions apply. 

Some two year olds may be eligible for Two's Too funded sessions.

From April 2024 the government is introducing Childcare for Working Parents (CWP) to eligible children from the term after their 2nd birthday for 15 hours per week (11 hours 'stretched').

From September 2024 the government is introducing Childcare for Working Parents (CWP) to eligible children from the term after they turn 9 months old for 15 hours per week (11 hours 'stretched').

At Cats Whiskers, as we are open for 51 weeks per year, we only off 'Stretched' funding.

To check if you are eligible for the Childcare for Working Parents please follow this link and apply.

Parents/Carers can get more help with childcare costs through Tax-Free Childcare, Tax Credits or Universal Credit

Tax-Free Childcare

Childcare Calculator

The government provides a childcare calculator which provides an estimate of how much parents/carers could get to help pay for approved childcare. As well as 15 and 30 hours​ childcare it also calculates if parents/carers might be eligible for Tax Credits, Universal Credits, Tax-Free Childcare or help whilst studying. 

The calculator can be found here:
