Throughout the year we have several exchange programs with Arnn Kindergarten and Child Development Center in the Camp Zama, herefore, American children naturally enter and come to our school without any problem.
They observe and offer some practical training, as well as introduce some of their languages and games to us. Within this total environment, American children get along with others and become friends in short time, even though they don't speak Japanese well at first. Every child in our school is an international goodwill ambassador.
