On average, a prekindergarten teacher in Georgia makes $51,000 per year. This is much higher than the national average due to the fact that Georgia recently included prekindergarten as an official part of the public school system, making it available to all children.
Across the nation, prekindergarten teachers make an average of $27,500 per year. In Georgia, even a new prekindergarten teacher with no previous experience makes at least $33,000 each year. Because it is a part of the public school system, the pay scale includes annual increases in salary for prekindergarten teachers. The salary also increases if the teacher earns a set amount of additional credits at the graduate level.
