North Dakota has national parks and a lot of wildlife. It’s great for people who love the outdoors, and with a relatively low cost of living, it can be good for an outdoorsy early childhood education worker. However, salaries for early childhood education jobs are on the low side, compared to the rest of the country. Preschool teachers, in particular, may have trouble finding high-paying work, with the average salary at just under $22,000. As a result, early childhood education workers in North Dakota may want to consider the cost of living in the area where they aim to live.
