Investing in Your Child’s Development with the Universal Child Care Benefit

I recently posted 4 ways you can leverage the UCCB lump sum the government just dropped into your bank account this week.

Reflecting on it, my suggestions were all about money and future needs. I think I missed something!

Maybe this gift is the perfect opportunity to invest in your child’s development.

What can 420$ (600$ if you consider 12 months of UCCB) do for them?

Here’s some suggestions:

  • send them to summer camp – a good one!
  • 6-10 months of music lessons
  • visit a city that interests them
  • a trip that will expand their worldview
  • a fall/winter sport
  • photography lessons
  • learn a new language

Since you know your child best, talk with them about something they’re dreaming about, then leverage this money for their development.

What’s something they’ve been dying to do but you haven’t been able to afford?
