Much of Idaho is rural, with national parks and historic trails all through the state, but following the trend in education, salaries for early childhood education jobs are not competitive. Salaries for preschool teachers, which average about $23,000, rank the highest compared to other specialties in early childhood education. However, salaries for elementary special education teachers, child care workers, and kindergarten teachers are among the lowest in the nation. Job seekers in early childhood education may want to carefully consider the cost of living before settling into a career in this state.
