Once these have been filled, we will end the admission process for the year. Should two or more applications for the final place in a class be made on the same day, that place shall be decided by ballot. (1) Families with siblings at ISN, and (2) Families who live in Matsumoto, where both parents are working, will be prioritised in this order. ※Families who apply after all the places in a class have been fulfilled will have the option of being placed on a standby list, should they wish.
