    Hi all.

    Looking for some advice, my little dude is 3 in September and I currently work 3 days a week and he goes to nursery for 2 of those days. So I have my wages and then I’m topped up by UC. I’m trying and have been for awhile to work out if it would be better off doing the free funding or keeping to the UC as I also want to increase my hours and have him in nursery for 3 days a week.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am struggling to work it out.

    Thanks
