When I ask you: Why is it important to invest in your child’s education early? What is the first thing that comes to mind? Cost, Time?
Or are you thinking: advantages?
For me initially when I thought about investing in education for my children early it was the cost involved that came to mind, the thought I was thinking was thousands of dollars. We have six children and I will be honest it is hard some months to meet the needs of everyday education: uniforms, school fees, excursions, materials, sports and the list goes on. It was hard to overcome the thought of putting more money to fund education in another direction.
Until I met with some representatives from ASG. Now my thoughts are along the lines of: “Investing in education is investing in my children, an education starts to open all doors for them.”
ASG was established in 1974 by a group of parents passionate about giving their children the best start in life through education.
ASG is the largest provider of education scholarship plans in Australia. Since our inception, we have supported the education journey of more than 520,000 children and more than $2.3 billion has been returned to members and their children in the form of education benefits and scholarship payments.
Whether you plan to send your child to a private, government or systemic school, education costs can add up quickly. However, with some forward planning and budgeting, you’re giving yourself the best chance to give your child a strong future.
ASG provides a range of products and resources to support your child’s education — from early learning through to post-secondary studies.
Whether you plan to send your child to a private, government or systemic (e.g. Catholic) school, the cost of their education will be significant.
Sounds great right? What if I told you: you can invest from as little as $2 a day? And not to forget to mention ASG’s education funds are tax effective and secure all through the Pathway Education Fund.
The Pathway Education Fund is a versatile plan perfect for anyone who wants to offset the costs of education at any stage of a child’s development.
Prospective parents, parents, grandparents and relatives can use the Pathway Education Fund to assist with education expenses during pre-school, primary school, secondary school and a wide range of post-secondary and vocational training courses.
In addition to financial products and services, ASG members enjoy access to a range of tools, information and advice designed to help families navigate their child’s education journey. Created in partnership with experts in parenting and early childhood development, these resources will allow you to support your child’s development from birth through to secondary studies and beyond.
Their members also receive exclusive member offers and discounts on quality educational products and family health insurance.
Remember “Investing in education is investing in your children, an education starts to open all doors for them.”
