Don’t Blink! College Will Be Here Before You Know It

Thank you for sharing!

I blinked. And Facebook kindly reminded me that our visit to her preschool… the one we made before we actually enrolled… really was 2 years ago. Her preschool graduation is in 2 weeks.  Just writing that make my eyes well up! I know I will blink again and find myself watching her cross the stage at her high school graduation. The time passes so quickly: are you financially prepared for their future now? CHET 529 plans want to help you prepare and give you a jump start to save for your child’s future.

      Yep, the earlier you start, the better the ‘magic’ of compounding will work for you!

    What a great program and wonderful incentive to start saving early!

    It’s so hard to think of college before kindergarten. But now that we are purchasing a house, saving up for college is the next step. Thanks for the reminder!

      It’s crazy to think about it before kindergarten, but those first 5 years of saving, and the extra years of compounding, can make a big difference by the time they are 18!
