The Childcare Network Teams Up with the Leading Child Care and Preschool Search Provider…Cool!

Word on the street is that Mom Trusted’s newest partner is the Childcare Network. This means my two favorite childcare-dedicated companies are now working together to offer the best options in early education and child care. Why is the Childcare Network-Mom Trusted partnership so great?


First, a little about each of the awesome partners:


The Childcare Network

The Childcare Network gives families affordable child care and early education options. It is currently the fifth largest private care provider in the country. It even offers free preschool to many families in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. With the rates of day care on the rise and preschool becoming more competitive and more expensive than ever, the Childcare Network offers services that are absolutely priceless in today’s child care and early education markets.


Mom Trusted

Mom Trusted offers parents options. It’s essentially an incredibly valuable search tool that helps parents find child care, nannies, babysitters, preschools and even in-home care. The founders had a tough time finding care for their own kids so they built this fantastic site to help other parents through the challenging process. With Mom Trusted, care providers, nannies, preschools and babysitters are matched up with parents in need of care across the country. Plus, parents can go off of referrals, making sure each option is both trustworthy and the right choice for them.


Why is this partnership a match made in heaven for both parents and child care and early education providers?


The new partnership will allow a more social and dynamic hunt for child care. Utilizing the social recommendations and referrals on Mom Trusted, the Childcare Network will tap into Mom Trusted’s large network to reach even more families. The center already offers child care to 24,000 kids in over 200 schools. Now, teamed up with Mom Trusted, the Network can reach even more.


Parents need more than basic facts and figures about a care center or preschool. They are, after all, trusting the providers with their children. Many look for personal recommendations, but those aren’t always easy to find. Now, the Childcare Network will be able to use Mom Trusted’s referral system to prove to prospective families that other parents in their area trust and recommend them.


As an early education blogger and someone who knows the market inside and out, trust me when I say that this new partnership is going to make all the difference to the child care and early education search. It’s a win-win: good for providers and great for families on the lookout for quality care and education.


ComparPreschool Teacher Income vs. All Teacher Incomes

When looking at a preschool instructor income compared with all teacher wages, plain and simple, preschool teachers generally make less. But precisely just how much less and why? Here are the details:.

So just how much less are we saying?

In 2011, the average preschool teacher made about $26,600 every year. According to the U.S. Census, educators general made nearly twice as much, at over $50,000 annually. During the same year, preschool teachers made less than both intermediate school and primary school instructors. They even made less than the typical sports coach in the year 2011.

Why the huge distinction?

Why the large difference when examining a preschool teacher income compared with all teacher incomes? One reason could be the education required. A lot of preschool educators are needed to have an associate’s degree, which just takes two years to obtain. Other teachers, nonetheless, from kindergarten with high school, are nearly constantly required to have a four-year bachelor’s degree. Some, even hold master’s.

The income differences can also have a lot to do with where the teachers work. Teachers who make one of the most are frequently discovered in public schools with a constant stream of financing, while preschool teachers are normally submitted into the childcare industry. This means they’re often privately run and numerous lack the necessary financing to keep them working, implying they just don’t have more cash to offer their instructors. Interestingly enough, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2012, the preschool instructors who made the most money were really the ones discovered working in elementary schools, not in privately funded programs.

Lastly, preschool is usually optional. The rest of a kid’s education is not.  It’s as simple as that. News and Numbers: The October Hot List
