Reviewed by Expert panel

Air pollution in Delhi is for sure hitting the headlines. Where the smoke has choked the fresh air, the fear of nursery admissions is also going to wrap the parents. And when December is around the corner, the anxiety soars high for them. DOE (Delhi Directorate of Education ) is managing the nursery admission system in the capital. It continuously works for improving the education system and that's why has introduced the “online nursery admission” process. 

 Delhi Nursery Admission 2020-21 - How EWS/DG Category Parents Can Register & Apply?

With the orders from DOE, every private or govt aided school shall reserve the seats for some special segments in a society like

  • EWS( Economically weaker section), which holds parents earning less than 1,00,000 per annum.

  • Disadvantaged category (DG) or people belonging to schedule caste, disadvantages.

Delhi govt has reserved 25% seats for them in private schools and RTE allows every child to seek admission in his or her neighborhood school under the reserved category. The admission forms can be easily availed from the school reception and submitted offline. No extra fee can be demanded from EWS/DG, however, help desks are available for their help in schools and localities. [Explore Nursery School Admissions in Bangalore, Karnataka]

Point System: ( Open Categories)

These days, schools are relying on a point system to have better transparency in admission. These points are allocated to the applicant child, on the various parameters like

  • Neighborhood. For example 0 to 8 km aerial distance between the school and residential address gives approx 70-80 points.

  • Sibling quota fetches 20 points to a child having a sibling in the same school.

  • Alumni may draw 5 points.

  • The girl child is given 5 points, as per the girl child parameter.

  • Submit the forms carefully and on time to stay eligible for the best schools. As computerized forms may be rejected due to filling errors which cannot be reapplied with similar applicant details.
