Usually, nursery admission in around 1,700 schools in Delhi begins in the last week of November. The Directorate of Education (DoE) releases guidelines and schools are asked to furnish required information, following which the application process is rolled out usually in December. However, there has been no development on it this year.

However, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia last month had ruled out scrapping nursery admission.

Nursery admission in the national capital will begin soon, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Tuesday.
“We will soon begin nursery admission. The process was delayed this year due to the pandemic,” he said while interacting with principals and authorities of private schools on educational reforms in the post-COVID-19 era.

Delhi government officials had in December said that a proposal to scrap nursery admissions is being considered as the schools have been closed for nine months due to COVID-19 and will remain closed till a vaccine is available, a whole year of online learning for small children seems unviable.
