Admission Overview

Willowbrook is an independent preschool located in the heart of Tokyo for children ages 15 months through 5 years. Since 1998, we have been committed to creating a learning environment of alumni, staff, teachers, parents and students who collectively support the growth and development of each student in our community. We offer an integrated educational curriculum with an emphasis on human values, interpersonal skills, creativity and multicultural awareness. In considering students for admission, we welcome all children into our program regardless of ability, although we equitably build each classroom negotiating the fine balance of language, age and gender.

Our website is a great window into our school. We encourage you to spend time exploring it. With any school, the best way to get to know us is to come for a visit. To meet the needs of our community, we have an ongoing admissions process and accept applications throughout the school year. We do encourage you to start the process as early as possible as we accept applications on a first come first serve basis. For information about our application process, please carefully review the application page.

Thank you for your interest in our school and we look forward to working with you.
