Money: 3 - 5 years

Now your child has reached the age of three, with the ‘terrible twos’ hopefully a thing of the past, the financial game changes a little. You can strike nappies and baby formula off your shopping list, unless of course your little angel has been joined by a younger sibling, but you will probably be spending more on shoes and items like bikes and scooters. Now is also a good time to revisit your longer-term financial plans, or put some in place if you haven’t already.

F&C has produced some articles relevant to our 3-5 years section, giving information on Nursery Costs, Switching Your Child Trust Fund and Other Savings.
