Preschool Classroom Placements:The Director, the Assistant Director, and the PHP-Preschool Teaching Staff assign children to Preschool classes. When forming classes we consider the overall development of each child, the peer makeup, and gender ratio. Careful thought and consideration are taken when placing each individual child. Each child’s placement is reviewed many times during the spring and summer to ensure appropriate placement. Please know that we work hard to find the best class possible for each child. When the final classes are assigned, no changes will be made.
