Northern Rock has turned its focus on the younger generation with the launch of a children's savings account.

Aimed at parents and guardians who wish to maintain some control over their children's spending, whilst teaching them the basics of finance, Little Rock Instant Access savings account pays a market leading 3.00%.

As an instant access branch based savings account requiring a minimum investment of £1, it is only available to kids under the age of 16.

The account must be opened with an adult named as trustee and the adult must be present for the child to make withdrawals.

We've awarded Northern Rock's Little Rock Instant Access children savings account Four out of five Moneyfacts stars as a reward.
