Nationwide BS has added to its range of children's savings accounts with the launch of a new 90 day notice account.

Paying 2.10%, the 90 Day Smart Saver is amongst the best rates around from a high street bank or building society for a notice account of this kind.

However, existing mortgage, savings and current account customers who have been with Nationwide for at least three months are being rewarded with a loyalty product paying a rate of 3.05% until 31 January 2013.

Early access to money is allowed albeit for the loss of 90 days' interest.

Both these accounts must be opened and operated by an adult over 18 as they are aimed at parents and grandparents who are looking to save for their child's future.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars are richly deserved.
