What is the average preschool teacher salary range?

Preschool teacher salary range will depend on the area, the teacher’s experience, and other factors. However, in general new teachers with less than five years of experience will earn anywhere from $20,000 to $30,000, while those with more experience may earn more than $40,000 annually.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median wage for preschool teachers was around $20,000 in May 2008 with the bottom ten percent earning less than $16,000, and the top ten percent earning more than $41,000.

Teaching preschool is not a job you enter if a high salary and prestige are important to you. Instead, you should teach preschool because you love children and enjoy both learning and teaching.
