How Much Do Childcare Workers Earn?

by lnmorrow

Child care workers only made an average of $18,820 in 2006.

Preschool teachers did a bit better at $24,784 – reported by the teachers union.

Certainly we can do better than that.  Bill Gates thinks so, his foundation will spend $12 million in child care programs.  Also Gov. Chris Gregoire created the Department of Early Learning to address the problem.  Hmmm, we will see.
