West Virginia is not a state where early childhood education workers will have a lot of options or much chance for a high salary. The average pay rates for all early childhood education jobs in the state are below the national average. But kindergarten teachers are likely to have the highest salaries, at around $45,000. Parkersburg is one of the best cities for preschool and kindergarten teachers. West Virginia residents may have an even better chance of finding a job if they commute out of state to the Washington, D.C., Alexandria, or Arlington areas.
