Schools across the city will start selling nursery admission forms from Tuesday. The sale and submission of forms will go on till January 15. Getting your kid into a nursery can be very competitive in a city like Delhi what with a large number students competing for good schools that are in short supply.
Of the close to 100,000 nursery seats available each year, 25% are reserved for applicants from the economically weaker section of society and the disadvantaged.
Of the remaining 75% seats, schools can reserve up to 20% under the management quota.
Schools have the freedom to devise a scoring system where points can be assigned for criteria, such as distance from school, sibling in the same school and whether the student is a girl, to name a few. These criteria cannot, however, score parents on the basis of profession, income or education.
Most schools give maximum points for distance from school, siblings and alumni.
