Anxious parents may not have to wait till the end of the month for the first list of nursery admissions. Many schools are coming out with the lists before the last date.
According to Directorate of Education (DOE) guidelines, the last date for the first list is January 31.
DPS International, Saket, will bring out the list on January 18, GD Goenka, Dwarka, on January 28, Tagore International School on January 27 and ASN International School, Mayur Vihar on January 21.
While this has reduced the anxiety of some parents, others are a little worried.
"The schools that are coming out with their results early are asking us to submit admission fees before January 31. In some schools, the fee is very high. I do not know if I should submit the fee and block the seat or wait for results of other schools as it involves a lot of money," said Rajan Verma, a resident of Patparganj, who works with an NGO.
While the fee is refundable as per DOE guidelines, schools take a month to return the money.
"Many parents do not have the kind of bank balance required to block seats in multiple schools. Also, schools deduct registration fees and tuition fee for a month while the rest is refunded," said Sumit Vohra, who runs the portal admissionsnursery.com.
