Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

It all depends on what state you are in. If you are working as a childcare provider out of your home, you can set your own rates but you can only have a certain amount of kids based on your being licensed or unlicensed.
The biggest skill I think is for you to have a passion for children. Taking courses in Early Childhood Education or joining a Chapter Association for your state is also good.
