I posted this on Facebook, but for those who don't have Facebook:
NLIS received the official registration with the city of Kofu for its kindergarten, ages 4 and 5. This took several years of visitations from the city officials, and the creation of a lot of forms and policies, similar to what WASC requires. We don't have age 3 or a playground on the premises, so it's not a full kindergarten, but we are a qualified, official, recognized institution by the city. Yeah!
