Hi. How much do you need to earn for the 30 free hours? My daughters hours have just been cut, she’s devastated having to leave nursery earlier. I’m doing the same amount of hours, if not more than before. I don’t get it? It’s meant to be if you earn at least 115 a week isn’t it? I’ve just noticed this on a letter. But when I phoned up to get a code and they said I have to be earning at least £520 a month? I’m on A zero hour contract so I do any hours but it’s usually about 60 hours a month.

Think you need to update info every three months have you done this

You have to warn the minimum of the equivalent of 16 hours a week at minimum wage for your age
You can't claim for this term as you've missed the deadline which was 31st August
You will have to claim now for the hours from 1st January

Check with the nursery as the grace period shouldn't end till 31st December so she should still get the 30 hours
