If you are even thinking about it, then the time is now. There are many great options to assist in planning early for future college expenses. A financial adviser would be able to discuss all the options that would be appropriate for your situation. Many states have pre-paid college programs that will lock in the current cost of tuition at the time of investment. These are great plans and can certainly help reduce costs in the future. However, the best investment is time and energy in your children. Be present and encouraging as they navigate school. Invest in them and hopefully they will reach their potentials and maybe even get some scholarships! Good luck!
