    Not sure what she is claiming.
    It's her salary that would determine any benefits surely, not how many hours she works or whether she is single?

    I would think everyone is different too, depending on circumstances.
    Some info here and where to contact: Help paying for childcare - GOV.UK

    I think it's 16 for tax credits.

    However the amount she will get will depend on her salary
    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    Tell mum to use the Childcare Choices website. It has lots of calculators to work out her estimated entitlements.
