Children's Savings Account


 

Hi, I'm Bobbi. I'm a Junior Saver. 

Do your children know the importance of saving? Of earning cash by helping with chores, and behaving? If their dream is to own a toy plan, a boat or fish; if they save up their money, they might just get their wish!
 
Opening a children’s saving account is one of most important things a parent can do – and opening a children’s saving account with the credit union can not only contribute to a child’s future, but teaches them important planning, budgeting and money management skills - giving them vital building blocks needed throughout their lives.  
 
Each year in September, the credit union’s national Junior Savers Week aims to raise awareness around the importance of children saving.
