Kindergarten Salary

I have been offered a teaching job at a child care center teaching kindergarten. I have no idea what to ask for as far as pay because I am not sure how different it will be since it is not in a school district. Any teachers out there, or teachers who are at a child care center that can help me out?

Re: Kindergarten Salary

  • I teach Kindergarten, but at a public school so I'm on the same pay scale as teachers prek-12. However, in my experience, child care centers pay much much less -- like under 30k. Was there any salary range when you applied?

  • Well I didn't really apply...I worked there for about 2 years as their Universal Prek teacher. I left last year to substitute teach in hopes of finding a job in a district. We still have districts laying off teachers and this daycare asked if I would come back and teach kindergarten. So no salary was posted or discussed yet. I did go in yesterday and ask what they would be offering but they still needed to figure it out.

    I was just hoping I could have some idea of what I should be asking for so when they do tell me a number I can be better prepared.

  • I was paid about $10.30/hr as a teacher's assistant for a while... but I found out that I was making more than some of my co workers, I'm assuming because I had my 40 hours, a lot of experience, and a BA. 
  • Around here it's probably normal to be paid about $10.00-$10.50 per hour for a private K job.

     Before I got my teaching job I was going to be a Pre-K and K teacher in a private pre-school and they were going to pay me $12.00. But there were no benefits or vacation offered.

    Ha, ha. I'm a public school teacher (2nd grade). Last year I made less than $30,000. This year I will hit the $30,000 mark because we get a $800 raise.

    The OP is in New York though.  I live in a HCOL area and starting salaries for teachers  in public schools are generally in the low $40s.

  • Thanks for your input. I was thinking I was asking for too much at first...I asked for $18/hr or salary of $35k. I taught Universal Prek there and was making $12.50. Now with kindergarten and assistant director duties I thought it should be significantly more.
