We always want our children to have the best education available but the costs can start to add up over time. Depending on how you choose to educate your child it could turn out to be one of your family’s largest expenses. For example, the average costs of sending your child to a private high school are approximately $30,000pa and that’s not taking into account things like uniforms, computers, excursions, sporting gear, private tuition and the year on year increase in fees! Even if you elect to decide to send your child to government schooling, the total costs could be around $4,500pa during high school once you add in all the extra costs.
Regardless of where you intend to send your child, parents need to start planning for education from birth to avoid financial stress later on.
