Advice needed on Childrens investment

I have been gifted a large sum of money which is for my daughters university education.
Minefield now how to make sure the money works really well until she goes.
I want to lock it away till she's ready to go (4 years) and now after looking on the site - it seems it is not as easy as I thought. wondering whether to just bank the cheque in her acct, and then move some to ISA's etc - or what really??? can anybody help?
I just want the most return on the cash - but obviously NO RISK etc.
