I have an interview for a 30hrs p/w job. If I got it I would need dd2 to go to nursery.
We would earn over the threshold for normal tax credit, but would we still be able to get childcare help?
Also the job is 6hrs a day, but varying shifts so if need a full day space, would I be able to claim help for the full nursery day even though I'm only at work for 6hrs?

Yes you can claim nursery hours for as many hours as you like as long as you work for 16 hours a week average or more.
Yes the threshold for childcare is higher than normal tax credits but not sure what the threshold is.
