Hello all

My dd is getting on really well at her nursery which is part of a private School which ,fingers crossed, she'll stay at.
DP and i have discussed puuting a lump sum of money into a trust fund just for this.
We have no idea where to start, he's going to speak to his financial advisor but we said we'd also ask mumsnetters as i've had some great advice before about Private Schools.
So does anyone have something of this sort set up and where do you start??

We just pay out of income, or add it onto the mortgage , but I have read good stuff about financial planning for education on the Independent Schools Information Service website and also on the Money and Education pages of the Telegraph.

Do you have a Financial Adviser you see about insurance etc.? He should be able to help. When we looked it made more sense for us to pay out of income for various reasons but there were quite a few schemes to choose from.

Thanks all,will look into all these options.

DP does have his own financial advisor so we'll be asking him too but knew you'd come up with some usefull stuff.
