  • All the schools need to adhere to the guidelines stated by the DOE. In case of any ambiguity, the admission process of that particular school could be suspended.
  • The point system adopted by the school cannot contain the 62-abolished point, which is unfair and unreasonable. These include oral test, parents’ interview, family background check, parent’s achievements etc.
  • The buying of the prospectus is not mandatory for the parents. The registration charge fixed by the DOE is Rs. 25, and only that shall be charged.
  • The government has directed the schools to video graph the draw of lots, and the same needs to be preserved for at least 3 months by the school.
  • The manual application of EWS/DG criteria is prohibited.

Important Notice:

  • The upper age limit (4 years) has not been put into force for the admission session 2018-2019. The high court stayed the order of the age limit because this delayed notification had left many parents into a helpless state. The upper age limit will be applicable from 2019 admission session onward.
  • There has been a lot of confusion regarding the Aadhar card. It is important to note here that the requirement of the Aadhar card differs from school to school. While some schools do not demand Aadhar card (for both parents and child), there are schools like Springdales which ask for the Aadhar card of the parents and the child. However, there is no clear instruction regarding the same from the government authority.

Delhi Nursery Admission Rules For Twins

The 2018-19 Delhi Nursery Admissions are commencing soon. And like every year, the governing guidelines have failed to address all the dilemmas faced by the parents. One major dilemma amongst them is the admission of twins as there are no fixed guidelines issued by the DOE (Directorate of Education) which the schools must follow.

There are around 1,700 private schools in Delhi & every school sets its own point criteria (distance from school, sibling, first-child, girl child etc). Some schools allocate points to the first-born child, some to the girl child and few to twins and this creates a lot of confusion amongst the parents on having a clear-cut selection criterion for the twins.

Following are some queries which we have received from parents of twins:

  • “Who amongst the twin will get the points of the first-born child?”
  • “Will any of my twin children get points for siblings?


Last year, Antika Srivastava, a parent of twins- a boy & a girl, had to undergo a lot of hassles during the admission session. She was bound to make multiple visits to the schools to get a nursery seat for both the kids in the same school. Though her daughter was able to get points under the girl-child category, her son was left out. Despite putting in so many efforts, she failed to get admission for her kids in the 2017 admission session.  She said that she would be trying again this year because she doesn’t want to separate her kids.


Anant Bhattacharya (a resident of Rana Pratap Bagh) said that he had a very unpleasant experience in the 2017 Delhi Nursery Admission session. His children were not eligible for points under the first-born child or twin categories because schools in this region did not allocate any point to these categories. His children qualified for only a few of the points such as neighborhood and alumni child. Due to these reasons, his children were not able to get admission to the schools which Mr. Bhattacharya wanted.

Still, there are some schools which give admission to both kids and assign some weight to this criterion. One such example is Delhi Public School, Vasant Kunj which allocates 5 points to children who are twins.

Schoolling urges all the parents that they should apply to multiple schools until the government comes up with clear guidelines to facilitate and ease the admission of twins to private unaided schools.

Delhi Nursery Admissions 2018-2019: The Wait is Over

Delhi Nursery Admission process 2018-19 is expected to start from 1 January 2018 in over 1,700 private schools.

Quoting the statement made by an official from the Directorate of Education (DOE): “We will bring out the final notification by 15 December 2017 after which the application forms will be available from 1 January 2018. Unless there are major changes, we are going to follow this schedule.” 



The entire admission process for nursery admission session 2018-19 is going to be the same as previous year’s, with the only change being the upper age limit for applicants which will be ‘4 years’ with ‘1-year’ relaxation for children with special needs. This is in addition to the previous year’s rule which says that the minimum age of the child for nursery admissions should be 3 years. So the child must be between 3 & 4 years to qualify for a nursery admission seat in Delhi.

According to the past observations, Nursery admission in Delhi starts from the first week of January and the application forms are closed by the end of this month i.e. January.



In December 2015, the DOE had planned to impose the upper age limit for nursery admissions but the decision was stayed by the high court, after which the admission in the year 2016-17 took place without an upper age bar. However, the court in the month of October 2016 upheld the decision to implement the age limit but the same was not imposed for the admission session of 2017-18 because of the opposition made by the association of private unaided school. This year (2018-19) government has imposed the upper age limit arguing that it has been done in order to ensure that children go into age-appropriate classes. The upper age is calculated as on March 31 of the year in which admission is sought.

Why Should Parents Not Miss Parent- Teacher Meetings?

What is a Parent-Teacher Meeting?

A parent-teacher meeting, parent-teacher conference or parent-teacher interview, is a short meeting which is held at the school between parents and teachers to discuss the progress of a child and henceforth identify gaps in any academic or behavioral problems which might be impeding the child’s performance and growth.

Enlisted below are a few advantages of attending the parent-teacher meeting on a regular basis:

  1. A track of the child’s academic performance: Parents can keep a track of their child’s academic performance on a regular basis i.e. it will help parents to know how their child is performing in class, where their child stands (above average, average or below average) in class, what is the potential of their child & scope of development if any and  how they can play an important part in further nourishment and development of their child etc.
  2. A track of the child’s performance in co-curricular activities: PTM is the platform where parents and teachers can talk about the monthly performance of the child both in academic and extra co-curricular activities. Teachers can show records of the child’s performance in the interactive session, competitions etc., which are conducted in the school; This encourages a holistic development of the child.
  3. Strengths and Weaknesses of the child: Regular follow-ups and discussions with teachers can help parents to know about the strengths and weaknesses of their child which are not very evitable and noticeable otherwise. It also helps the parents to know about the latent talent of the child and henceforth parents can play a great role in molding that talent which many a time gets suppressed.
  4. identification of any unusual behavior of the child: Regular meetings and discussions encourage a free flow of information from both parent’s and teacher’s side. This is very helpful in identifying any unusual behavior of the child in the class. There are behavior and attitude of the child which parents are unaware of sometimes. An interactive PTM session can be helpful in identifying and curing them.
  5. Judgement about school: With the help of PTMs, parents can discover the accurate teacher-child ration. It helps them to judge how much attention teachers are giving to their child. The positives of this point can bring about overall satisfaction and confidence in the school they have chosen for their child.

Safety In Delhi Schools: What is the Govt. Doing About It?

Did you know?

One in every three children in India feels that their school is not safe.

Every day, Delhi is witnessing a lot of cases from ruthless killings to molestation of girls & what not. Looking at these turmoils, Delhi Government has recently issued 117-point checklist to schools on student safety.

The schools have to adhere to this checklist & there will be zero tolerance in case of any discrepancies.  A senior official of DOE (Directorate of Education) said that this checklist is formulated to encapsulate these minimum standards of school safety and there will be a proper monitoring and follow-ups which would be taken by a government body.

Following bullets would help you to gain a quick glance at these checkpoints for child safety in schools:

  • Every school should have a school safety committee.
  • A Government official will do a monthly safety walk to identify security gaps in the school premises.
  • The infrastructure norms by the government include CCTV Surveillance, secured boundary walls with grills, well-lit washrooms with easy release lock and no lock from outside, fire alarms, and fire extinguishers installed at proper places.
  • There should be no deployment of male staff in toilets for primary class and all toilet visits of student up to class 2 must be supervised by a lady caretaker.
  • Respective teachers should keep a strict eye on all the visits happening in laboratories, sports room, computer lab, library, assembly hall etc.
  • Schools are instructed to ensure cyber security in accordance with cyber and IT laws, which includes installation of firewall, filtering and monitoring mechanism in all the computers, and ensuring the use of computers in close supervision of teachers.
  • The Government has also directed the schools to extract a written consent from parents for allowing children to stay post-school hours for any extra or co-curricular activities.

These are a few intricate highlights of the Delhi government’s recent issue of 117-point checklist to schools on the student safety.

The positive result could be furnished only if the policies are properly implemented, followed-up, and coordinated between governing body and school authorities.

Apply to as many schools as possible

Why is it advisable to apply to at least 12 schools?

Delhi’s admission has always been a hotly discussed topic as it witnesses a success rate similar to that of a competitive exam like AIPMT (Medical Entrance)

Are you wondering what does that mean?

There are 5,720 schools all over the 10 regions of Delhi which have MCD, Local Body (Government), Private Aided and Private Unaided Schools. With around 1700-1800 Private Unaided Schools in Delhi, which offer approximately 1,25,000 seats against a total of 14,84,780 online registrations (2017), one can deduce the amount of cut-throat competition that Delhi nursery admission process undergoes every year.

Schoolling conducted a close survey to get a better picture of the Delhi admission process. In 2017, a Private unaided school offered approximately 80-100 seats, and according to our survey, for every 1 seat, there were around 8.231 kids competing against each other. The past experience confirms that the success rate is very minimal. Also, there were around 17% children who did not get admission into any school. AIPMT admission process, on the other hand, had 12.04 students competing for a seat in 2017.

It is important to note that one should always apply to the most preferred/dream school but the list should not be restricted to only a few of such schools; A child cannot afford to cost his one year of life. So, to be on safer side it is always appreciated and advised to apply to the minimum of 12 schools.

Are you worried about how to apply to multiple schools without getting into too many hassles?

You can make multiple application to schools much easier with Schoolling.

Should one change school frequently?

‘One should readily adapt to changes’, but it is important to understand that frequent changes may not be as good if it is changing schools. Following are a few reasons which might bind a parent to change their child’s school:

  1. Parents get transferred to some other city/state/country.
  2. Any financial constraint of the family.
  3. Both the child and the parents are not satisfied with the school.
  4. A child being bullied in the school, which is causing mental trauma to him.
  5. Peer pressure.
  6. Family coming across any unprecedented situation which leaves them with no choice but to change schools.

This article will help you to understand various advantages and disadvantages of changing school.


Advantages Of Changing Schools

  1. New Beginning: Sometimes changing school can become a turning point in a child’s life. It can revive the child from trauma and problems, which he might have suffered in his/her previous school.
  2. Adaptive to Changes: Changing child’s school inculcates and improves his/her adaptive skill to the changing environment. Frequent changes make it easy for the child to adapt to new situations, environments, and people.
  3. Offers New Opportunity: Changing schools offer new opportunities which the earlier school might have failed to provide.
  4. Enhances Life Values: Changes enhance one’s perspective and values towards life. When a child tries to blend himself/herself in the changing environment, he/ she learns to reinforce his/her life value in due course of time.
  5. Fosters Personal Growth & Development: In certain cases, the parent changes the child’s school because of the dissatisfaction caused by the previous school. Walking in the new environment enables him to imbibe the best offered by the new school. This will further ameliorate his personal growth, development, and confidence.


Disadvantages of Changing Schools

  1. Social Challenges: A child might not be able to get well with new people and he/she might feel isolated in the new school. This can hamper the holistic growth and development of the child.
  2. Academic Challenge: A child might face academic challenges in his/her new school. To dwell in the new system and environment, it can be challenging task for a child, and this can also affect his/ her academic performance.
  3. School-Child Relationships: ‘Success of any school and a student depends on how well they reside with each other.’ For a child, it might be difficult to keep up with the pace of the new learning environment. Similarly, a teacher might take some time to assess and understand the new child. This delayed response might make a child despondent.
  4. Environmental Challenges: Changes might not always give positive results. For a child getting transferred to a new place where he/she meets people with distinct culture, lingual background, it would be very challenging for him/her to adapt to those changes. It can further result in dejection and hopelessness.
  5. Other Challenges: When situations like family problems, financial clutch etc. bind a parent then changing the school could be one of the things on their list & this might make the child vulnerable to new situations.

Evolution of Admission Process in Delhi

We often talk about how the Delhi Government has evolved so much over the years & so has its nursery admission process governance. The adoption has indeed been a very gradual & steady one, unfolding with a series of discussions, recommendations, and trials.

There have been various phases through which the Delhi nursery admission process has passed over the years in order to reach to the current standardized and uniform admission process.

Following have been the 3 phases of Delhi Nursery Admission process over the last 2 decades:


Phase I

In the very beginning, the government had no major role to play in the admission process; Schools were enjoying a complete flexibility in choosing their admission processes. Most schools followed the process of having a very basic admission form and then selected students according to their preferences like first come first served, bribes etc.

Since there was no online mode of applications, no uniform set of rules to follow and no authority to supervise, the complete onus shifted to parents and this, in turn, made parents bound to give multiple visits to schools (for enquiring about the admission process, collecting forms, prospectus, and then submitting them to the school).

This process was getting cumbersome not just for parents but for schools as well & there was a need to polish and revive the entire process. After multiple, complaints, appeals and discussions, the next phase of admission process was brought:


Phase II

The shortcomings of phase I process were curbed in this phase; The government realized the need of stepping in & appointing a strict regulatory body which can keep an eye on the entire education process.

Schools evolved from ‘asking parents to fill an admission form with basic details’ to a ‘detailed admission form and parent-child interview’. Further, the process was simplified by making the admission process accessible on both offline, and online modes.

Though this phase was a modified version of phase 1, it was also not devoid of glitches. Following are the loopholes in this phase which demanded a leap to phase 3:

  • Minimal intervention and supervision by the government body in Private unaided schools.
  • Not every school followed an online admission process.
  • Even if some schools had online portals, they lacked proper information and updates, which bounded the parents to visit the schools.
  • There was no standard format for the admission form. Parents were judged & given admissions on the basis of their salary, work nature, eating & drinking habits.


Phase 3: 

With the advent of this phase, Delhi nursery admission process witnessed uniformity and standardization. Delhi now has a proper functioning regulatory government body i.e. DOE (Directorate of Education) which has implemented ‘the point system’ and abolished 51 criterions, which were previously opposed by parents (Non-smoking parents, parents-child interview, Vegetarian family etc.). Point system is a system where schools allot certain points,  based on parameters like the neighborhood, siblings studying in school, parents being the alumnus of the school, girl child, the only child, single parents etc. (parameters of point differs from school to school). This system is widely appreciated and accepted by the parents.

Every coin has two faces, despite all the goods in this phase, there are certain shortfalls. These are as follows:

  • Not every school has an online portal to facilitate admission process.
  • Points parameter varies from schools to schools.
  • There is no single platform to facilitate admission to multiple schools.

We, as Schoolling has tried to address one of the shortfalls of phase 3 by designing a platform which can facilitate application to multiple schools. We are launching our website and Android App (SCHOOLLING) in December 2017. Until then you can keep yourself updated on our Facebook page and blogs.
