The HPP Preschools of the future project aims to prevent poor children to become poor adults. The classes are established in natural villages of impoverished regions, and utilize old school grounds or other available venues as classrooms. Parents form a parents’ committee to support and supervise the running of this community preschool. HPPC, the Bureau of Education and the parents together recruit teachers locally and then HPPC provides training to them.
The preschool classes provide 6 hour early childhood education every day and the POF teachers understand that every child is unique.
In this period, Deputy Director General of Yunnan Provincial Department of Education visits POF Zhenkang.
