Can anyone give us information regarding any international pre schools to north of Mitaka JR station. We want to put our kids (3 + 2 months) old in a school which has timings like a hoykuen
(8.30am to 6.30pm).
I know some of the schools at kichioji and musashi sakai..I checked the web and could find only a high school and another for kids with special needs at Mitaka. We live close to musashino city ward office...
