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.
