Maharashtra RTE Admission Age Criteria

First of all, it is very important to know if your child has reached the appropriate cut off age for admission. The Maharashtra Government had issued a resolution in 2015 stating that a child must be six years of age while seeking admission in Class I. Thus a child must complete three years of age when applying for admission in the nursery. The cutoff date was first issued as of July 31 and later pushed to September 30. This essentially means that your child must have completed three years as on September 30 if applying for nursery admissions. [How to Apply in Maharashtra RTE Online for 25% Reserved Seats?]

School Research & Shortlist

Mumbai, Pune as well as the many cities of Maharashtra are home to a large number of different schools. The government, government-aided and private schools are the basic categories, each with a number of schools with varying fees structure, syllabus, infrastructure, and board examinations. As a parent one has to first find out which are the schools best suited to your needs and convenience. Of course, the quality of education is the prime factor to take into account, however, distance from home, fees structure, extracurricular activities, and the examination board are also things that are good to consider. By speaking to other experienced parents, reading and following the websites of the school's parents can get a good idea about the standard and quality of different schools.

Thus the first thing to do is chalk out a list of the potential district-wise schools that you would like to apply for new admissions.

RTE or Right To Education in Maharashtra

According to the RTE rules, the Maharashtra government has reserved 25% of the seats for poor children across the government, government-aided and private schools. The official website of Maharashtra RTE allows applicants to select their district and apply it. All rounds of the admission process are over for the academic year 2019-2020. However, one can keep this in mind for application to Class I in the subsequent years.

 

Mumbai and Pune are educational centers and home to some of the finest learning institutions of the country. November and December are the peak months for parents to be aware of the new admissions since application forms are usually released then. With diligence, parents can follow up on the admission process to ensure a healthy academic environment for their child.

Finally, the child learns through various mediums and institutions. However, the school remains one of the most important centers of education and learning after home.
