The admission process for nursery at private unaided and recognised schools in the national capital is likely to begin from January 1.

Meanwhile, the detailed notification for nursery admission 2018 will be out by December 15.

“We will bring out the notification by December 15 after which the application forms will be made available from January 1. Unless there is a major change, we are going to follow this schedule,” an official from the directorate of education (DoE) told HT.

Slight change in admission process:

Moreover, the official said that in the admission process the only change that can happen would be the imposition of an upper age limit for applicants.

“The only change this year is the imposition of an upper age limit. Kids of age between 3-4 years will be eligible for Nursery, between 4-5 years for KG, and 5-6 years for Class 1,” the official added.

Every year, the nursery admissions create a lot of hue and cry.

Parents confused over online-offline process:

Last year, parents remained confused about the enrollments under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category, which has gone online this year. According to PTI reports, there were technical problems that were faced by parents.

The webpage for EWS online nursery admission crashed barely few hours after the process began.

Moreover, the website of Queen’s Mary School in Model Town said ‘hacked’.

No school admission if parents have more than 2 kids:

This year, the admission process began on January 2 in around 1,400 private schools in Delhi-NCR.

In the middle of admissions, a well-known Delhi school has denied admittance to parents having more than two kids. “It wants to motivate people to have fewer children,” the school said.

Meanwhile, Salwan School in West Delhi’s Rajendra Nagar has mentioned this condition in the registration forms issued by its two branches– Salwan Montessori and GD Salwan. “Parents having more than two children, including whose admission is sought, need not apply,” read the form.

Upload admission criteria on the DoE portal:

Moreover, to ensure that the process is as transparent as possible, the Directorate of Education (DoE) instructed schools to upload their admission criteria on the DoE portal.

Admission process begins in Chandigarh:

The process of issuing application forms for admission to nursery and kindergarten classes at private and convent schools in Chandigarh has begun. Parents are now rushing for admitting their child to the best schools.

The Chandigarh Education department has set December 12 as the deadline for submission of forms in these schools.
