Every year at the time of nursery school admissions, all the parents go through a lot to try to get entries in a right school. All the research, application forms, eligibility, and all that. Let us make all that work a little simpler for you.

Here is all you need to know about Nursery school admissions in Delhi: Eligibility, tips for applying, things to consider, and top 20 nursery schools in Delhi.



1. Eligibility criteria for Nursery school admissions in Delhi

A few years back, Delhi High Court held that there is no upper age limit for joining in a nursery school in Delhi. The minimum age was given as three years by or before March 30th, the academic year. But the following is the age limit followed in recent years:

Nursery Class: 3-4 years

Kindergarten (KG): 4-5 years

1st class: 5-6 years

These age limits were given by Delhi Government (DoE) for the academic year 2019-2020.




2. Necessary document and tips for filing application

The application process is hectic. To make sure the kids get into top schools, you will want to apply to multiple schools so that your kid has an excellent chance to get into one of them. There are things you can do even before the date of application, like gathering necessary documents. Here is the checklist of essential documents for you.

  1. Birth Certificate:

The birth certificate is the first document you need to keep ready. Make sure there are no errors in the Birth certificate and take enough copies. It will help you to apply to multiple schools hassle-free.

  1. Residence Proof

A second important document is your residence proof. Some schools are okay with a single proof for residence proof, but some might ask for two proofs. To be on the safer side, keep three or four different residence proof in hands. The documents that are considered as valid id or residence proof are a passport, Aadhar card, Voter Id, Ration card, Domicile certificate, or electricity/water/MNTL bill. All these should be in the name of one of the parents of the child. In case you have just moved into a rented house and don't have any of these documents, you can try with the rent lease document.

  1. Sibling Quota

Many schools offer sibling quota if one or more siblings of the child are already studying in their school. In that case, you will need to keep fees receipt or any other document of that school ready to avail them.

  1. Alumni Quota

When you are trying to admit your child in the school, you or your spouse have studied before, ask if they have any alumni quota. If it is there, you might have to attach the X/XII passing certificate for that.

  1. Single Parent

In some schools, extra points are given while considering the application of a single parent. You need to attach relevant legal documents as proof of that.

  1. First-born Child

Some schools offer grant points for the first-born child, and you need an affidavit to claim it. Some schools have a specific format for it. Be sure to check their website before spending money on getting one.

  1. Children with special needs

To get admission under this quota, you will need to submit a certificate of disability from a government hospital.

  1. Caste Certificate

In case you want to avail caste quotas, keep the caste certificate handy as well.
