I made a mistake by putting my daughter in a class with special needs kids

She is in a class with most kids that have special needs. I have absolutely nothing against children with special needs. I just feel my daughter is out of place at this school. I don't think there is another preschool that offers longer hours than the standard 3 hours. So upset I think I made the wrong decision in picking this school.

As long as she is learning does it really matter if the SN kids are in the class as well??????????

Think about the life lessons you are teaching her instead she is fine she is still learning it will be ok in the long run she will be a better person for it. Kids should be exposed to all sorts of diffrent people from the time they are itty bitty on up. They learn compassion and to be helpful and less hateful towards people, you made the right choice not the wrong one.

Is it effecting her learning?

It's preschool. Very, very necessary for sn kids, not so needed for kids with involved parents that are neurotypical.
What's your biggest issue with it?

First, I think exposure to "differences" will be fantastic for your child. My son grew up closely with his cousin who is marked as different because of his cerebral palsy and he is so compassionate. He doesn't even realize that he goes out of his way to be helpful.
Second, if you're really disliking the school then look into other options. You are the parent and your childs advocate, if you truly feel it's the wrong choice then fix it.
My personal opinion is to wait it out and see if it's actually going to hold her back.

This is all well and good but if it is effecting her learning then she should be in a different classroom where her learning will not be hindered. I learned all of these things just fine without having a bunch of special needs students in my classes.

Is it headstart?  because that program prioritizes childern with special needs.  If your daughter doesn't need pre-k, send her to daycare instead.

 I seriously doubt it's hindering her in anyway........
