Delhi nursery admissions are all set to begin from 18 February 2021 for the upcoming academic session. The directorate has also started the preparation for the admissions process. The first list will be out on 20 March, said the Directorate of Education (DoE). The entire process of admission will be closed by 31 March.

This year, the admissions process for nursery class in Delhi schools is being conducted entirely online. Usually, nursery admission in around 1,700 schools in Delhi begins in the last week of November. The process was delayed this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

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