I am looking for the average yearly salary for a private childcare
director.  Someone who runs a program like Kindercare, Tutor Time,
Kiddy Acadamy etc.  I am not looking for one of those "salary
calculator" figures, but some type of report or study etc.  If at all
possible the the more specific the better.  NY state great, Long
Island, even better!

Greetings Julie99,
I’ve looked around and saw several sites mentioning salaries of Child
Care Center Directors. If the first site listed seems like a “salary
calculator”, my apologies. I made sure there were other sites that
also list salaries for child care directors (even job postings can
give a clue). I chose the first that come up when I do a search on
Google. If they don’t give you the exact figure, I hope they provide
you with a good idea. - Head of Child Care Center (Hospital Operated) Salary
Survey Information | Free Job Description & National Average Salary
- National median base salary of $49,594 annually... I reckon the
salary for a private center director would not be far from this
- If you do a new search here though, you will be asked for a login
name and password.

PayScale - Director, Child Care Operations Salary Survey, Salaries,
Wages, Compensation
- $42,000 a year average

PayScale - Assistant Director, Child Care Salary Survey, Salaries,
Wages, Compensation
- Not far from the Director itself, hmm. 

UCLA – Child Care Services Center Director - $42,696-$63,996

Job Opening: Asst Director/Teacher - NY (Long Island)- Teachers.Net
Career Center
- Gives $11 an hour as Assistant Director salary... so a Director
would be higher, probably similar to the Colorado job below.
