i would have thought that as she is your mum you are not required to pay her....

even if your mum was a "real" childminder you couldnt use your childcare vouchers to pay her, so i cant see why it would be different...
but if you can, as a nanny i charge £150 for 24 hours if that helps wink

i think you should definitely be able to claim for your day off work

I think your mum could work as your nanny, and therefore you should pay her £150.

Claim for a day's wages for your mother -- that's the genuine cost, so seems perfectly reasonable. If they then want to challenge it they can.

shock at being allowed to claim £1 per hour for a childminder...

what planet do they live on?
