Delhi’s nursery admission

The registration for nursery admission for the academic year 2022-23 will begin today. The schools are selling admission forms online and the same can be purchased from the school premises as well.

Nearly 1800 private schools across the national capital are opening their doors for Delhi’s nursery admission. The application submission date is till January 7, 2021.

On January 28, the schools will upload the marks of each candidate who has registered for admission.

The Department of Education (DoE) had notified it earlier that the list of the selected children will be updated on February 4. The second list will be available on February 21 and the third list for admission to nursery class will be updated on March 15.

The entire process will be concluded on March 31, 2021.

The education department ensured that the number of seats at the entry-level admission level should not be less than the last three years–2019-20, 2020-21 and 2021-22. Schools are requested to send details of it to the DoE.

“Schools shall develop and adopt criteria for admission which shall be fair, reasonable, well defined, equitable, non-discriminatory, unambiguous and transparent,’’ the DoE said.
“No school shall adopt a criterion abolished by the department including charging a capitation fee or donations. Pre-schools or Montessori schools run by registered societies or Trusts as branches of recognised unaided schools will have to follow a single admission process for their pre-school and main school considering them as one institution,” the DoE official said.

“No deviation from the above schedule shall be permitted. Each school shall display the aforesaid admission schedule on its notice board and website. Further, each school shall ensure that application forms for admission are made available to all applicants till the last date of submission. A non-refundable amount of only Rs 25 can be charged as an admission registration fee. The purchase of the prospectus of the school by the parents shall be optional,” a senior DoE official said.

The entire admission process will be monitored in each district under the chairmanship of the deputy director. While DoE had provided the schools’ autonomy to decide their admission criteria and the same need to be uploaded to their respective websites.
