From reading bedtime stories and stacking blocks to opening a college savings account, like an NC 529 Account, parents begin preparing their children for higher education almost as soon as they are born. That’s why the Diapers to Dorms Dash that was held on December 30, 2017, was such a wonderful fit for the NC 529 Plan.

The free event helped future students learn the ins and outs of navigating their first year of grade school.

There were first-time holidays and new traditions begun. Then, you blinked, and now you are weeks away from the next milestone — starting kindergarten!
Preparing for an Educational Milestone
Just in Wake County, nearly 12,000 students are expected to enter schools this year as the class of 2030.
Graduation day for the high school class of 2030 feels like a long way away. But this year, a different kind of graduation is upon them — preschool graduation! In the fall, the class of 2030 will be entering kindergarten and starting their journey through the wonder and excitement of grade school.
