Parents seeking admission for their children for nursery class can visit the official website of the school they wish to apply to, fill in the mandatory details and submit the documents required to complete the admission process. While the private schools’ admissions will be held online, the admission process in the government schools will be conducted both via online and offline modes.

As per the guidelines of the Directorate of Education (DoE), the first list of selected children will be released on March 20, followed by the second list on March 25, and the subsequent list for admission, if any, on March 27. The classes of the students will begin on April 1, 2021.

According to the rules, a child has to be four-year-old to take admission in Nursery class, five for KG class, and six to take admission in Class 1.


The admission process for nursery children usually begins in the last week of November, but the procedure this year had been delayed due to the pandemic situation. Previously, few reports claimed that the Delhi government was planning to skip the nursery admissions this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the schools being shut for over nine months. However, Education Minister Manish Sisodia had rubbished such reports.

“Till date, there is no plan to scrap nursery admissions this year. Sure we are late due to the pandemic, but admissions will happen,” Sisodia had said. Last week, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal assured that nursery admission in the national capital will begin soon and all COVID-19 protocols will be kept in place.
