Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase in this role. People who have worked for fewer than five years earn around $30K, and folks with five to 10 years of experience see a modestly higher median of $32K. Directors of Child Care with Operations Management skills see a median salary of $36K after reaching one to two decades on the job. In the end, the overall pattern seems to be that more experience generally corresponds to higher pay; a Director of Child Care with more than 20 years of experience can earn $39K on average.
