A bit of good news for parents and hopefully for childminders as more parents may be able to go back to work.

Yes I heard this on the news it does sound good.

That would be good. I've had several mums come to me who work 15hours a week. It's always seemed a bit unfair that they couldn't claim anything, when others who only work 1 hour longer can.

Luckily, some employers have increased their hours to 16 to enable them to claim.

I saw it too, at the moment I would take on very part timers or emergency cover or anything, it is so quiet here I am seriously considering if it is worth all the hassle. I love the ones I have but will be down to just one part timer next month and I can't afford to keep that up for long. I am seriously looking for other jobs at the mo, thankfully I was upfront with the one part timer I have when I took her on so she knows that what I want to do is work in school. So if I did get another job I don't think she would be surprised.

Thanks for the link Dave - it is indeed good news - just a shame that we all have to wait unti 2013 for it.
