Preparing for your child’s higher education can never begin too early. The earlier you start, the more options are available and the longer your money has to grow. Paying for college seems to get more expensive every year. If you have a child who you hope to send to college—either soon or down the road—you may have considered how you will afford to pay for their higher education.
