Montana is known as the Big Sky state, and sports many national parks and a lot of open space. However, it’s not as lucrative as other states for those working in early childhood education. Preschool education administrators and child care workers are likely to find salaries close to the national average. Furthermore, pay is higher for child care workers in Missoula and Billings. However, for both elementary school special education and kindergarten teacher salaries, Montana ranks 44th in the nation.
