I am having a baby in September and I am really interested in teaching preschool or working at a daycare. I've taught kindergarten for 4 yrs and 1st grade for 1. I have absolutely no idea how much teaching preschool pays. I need to know because I'm not sure if this is a logical choice for me and my kid. Obviously, I would want my baby to go to the daycare where I work, one of the benefits of working at a daycare. I live in Raleigh, NC, but information on anywhere would be helpful. 1. How much do preschool teachers typically get paid? 2. What kind of discounts to most daycares offer to employees. Please help, I don't know how else to get this information. Unlike public school teachers, salaries are not public.

I would stay in a public school. You have benefits there, paid vacation AND you get paid more. BUT if you must, try to get a K job like someone else said.

Mrs.B I'm working at my daughter's daycare and it's going pretty well. I'm teaching Kindergarten. I worked out a very flexible schedule with the director and get a discount. It's wonderful to know my daughter is downstairs. However, I really miss the school setting. Since it's a daycare I don't have alot of parental involvement and there's not alot of op...See More
