Criteria for Admission to Nursery:

Those living within the radius of 0-3 kms will get an advantage under the Neighbourhood/distance criterion. Sibling studying in the same school and/or parents being the alumni of the same school stand a higher chance for admission for their ward. Some schools also give points for single girl child or the first child and others. However, how much point-wise  weightage individual schools give to the above-mentioned points will only be revealed once they will upload the detailed criterion on their website on December 14, 2021.


DoE has further announced that the private schools will have to declare the details of all entry-level classes on the DoE website as well as the notice board which must also include information about the number of seats available for admission. They must also submit the hard copies of the details to the Deputy Director of Education (DDE, district) by December 31 who will then further verify the accuracy as well as the completeness of the number of seats in their district by  comparing the details declared online vis-a-vis the hard copies submitted by the schools. A monitoring cell will also be constituted under the chairmanship of the concerned Deputy Director (district) who will ensure that all the above mentioned key points have been taken care of by each of the private unaided recognised schools in their respective districts.

So Moms and Dads get on your marks and get set to be on a go! Do check out the latest updates for more news on the admission process.
