I’m not sure if this has been covered anywhere but, I have looked around a few different sites and I just wanted some ideas really. I am the ‘Head’ of the nursery class in the school I work at. It is a private school and I have worked there 12 years in October/November time. I am only a level 3 but i have worked myself up from being part time to full time in the 3-4 year old room for about 6 years, then added to that I became the holiday club coordinator; I was the 2 year old room supervisor for 2 years and then I went back to the 3-4 year old room to cover maternity leave and I officially took over and I’m in my 4th year of being the ‘nursery manager’, although my title is the head of the room. My question is, is there an ideal range of wage I should be on? With it being part of a private school I do not do the admissions, wages etc. Although i do everything else. I teach the children more than what I have gathered other nurseries do in my area, as we have quite high standards, although with me being level 3, i don’t have the Early Years teaching status. I feel I should be on more than I am, as I do a lot, particularly a lot at home. I am under £15,000. With it being a private school, a lot of people have the misconception that the staff must also have ‘money’. Most of the money earned from the students does go on staff wages, but I feel the early years does not take up much of that. I hate asking for anything. It is a business and numbers vary year after year, but I feel I should be on more than that? Everything I see online says over £17,000. I just wondered if the £15,000 sounded okay or if I should be asking for more? I have no experience elsewhere so I have no idea really.
