The first lists for nursery admissions to most of the capital's private schools were out on Tuesday and while some parents were overjoyed at their child making it, others were disappointed. “We had applied to eight different schools in central and south Delhi. It was good to see our child qualifying for admission to three of them,” said Meenakshi Kathuria, who is seeking admission for her four-year-old son. “We thank the neighborhood point-concept for all the three schools where he got selected,” added Kathuria, a resident of Rajinder Nagar. According to the point system this year, students were selected on the basis of points scored by them and their parents. Parameters decided by the school included proximity of their home to the school, siblings studying in the institution, single parents, and girl child, among others. “We have tried to be just and fair in our admission procedure. The point system was balanced and very much in accordance with the directorate of education (DoE) guidelines,” Vandana Puri, principal of Salwan Public School in central Delhi's Rajinder Nagar, told the sources. But some parents were disheartened. “Our child's name was not there in the DPS (Delhi Public School) Vasant Kunj list. We are hoping for some more schools to come up with their list where we can secure a place,” said Ashima Grover, mother of four-year-old Saurabh. Chirag Goyal was among those whose child got admission but not in the school that was their first choice. “Our child figured in Bal Bharati's list but we wanted her to get admission in Springdales school at Pusa Road where her elder brother also studies,” said Goyal, father of three-year-old Nitya and resident of Gole Market. “We will wait for the second list to see if our child makes it to the school of our choice,” he added. Most parents have applied to over 25 schools to be on the safe side. The schools now move ahead with the admission procedure where parents would be completing formalities like the child's details and depositing the fees.
