My daughter has an old iPhone 4. When she was out playing, a boy took the phone off her and kept typing in a wrong pin til the phone was disabled for 15 minutes.

From looking online, it seems the next stage is that the phone will be locked for 60 minutes. Will this be any time a wrong pin is entered (if my daughter makes a mistake) or does it reset in a day or so?

It resets

I think it resets as soon as unlocked and correct pin is entered

Phew, that's a relief. Will be having words with the boy's parents but at least the phone isn't broken. Thanks

Actually we once had to sign onto iCloud from the computer to reset it and unlock it which was the worst but still recoverable
