Nursery fees are rising faster than inflation, salaries are frozen and tax credits are being cut - which can all have a big impact on families trying to manage their household budget. Research suggests many parents spend more than a third of their incomes on childcare. So, if you'd like advice on tax-efficient schemes like childcare vouchers, or details on your rights and responsibilities when employing a nanny, you can call Money Box Live. Paul Lewis and a panel of experts will answer your calls and emails on the finances of childcare. Email moneybox@bbc.co.uk or call 03700 100 444. Lines open at 1pm, Wednesday.

Producer, Sally Abrahams.
