New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday announced that nursery admissions will soon begin in the national capital.
He made the announcement while having an interaction with principals and authorities of private schools on education reforms post Covid-19.
“We will soon begin the nursery admissions. The process was delayed this year due to the pandemic,” he said.
The nursery admissions normally begins in the last week of November in around 1,700 schools in the national capital.
Under the process, the Directorate of Education (DoE) releases the guidelines. The application process begins in December.
The process was not initiated this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. In December, the officials had said that the government is mulling to scrap the nursery admissions this year.
They reasoned that children find it difficult to learn during the online classes. However, the Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had ruled out any chances to scrap the nursery admissions.
