I'm not shure about the Janus fund but the Vanguard 500 is extremely tax efficient. I wouldn't sell now and pay the gains.

I also wouldn't use a Roth. Under the new tax act, you can contribute $2,000 to an Educational IRA. It's also after tax like the Roth, but it's designed for education.

I've seen several article on which one you should use, 529 or Ed IRA. There's one here on the Fools web site you can probably find with a search but keep in mind most articles won't have considered the new laws.
