Admission Information for Nursery Class 2018-2019

Policy, Categories, Criteria and Procedures

The admission policy will reflect the general ethos and philosophy of the Springdales Schools run by the Springdales Education Society (Estd. 1956). The schools are inter-generational, and promote inclusivity, integration and heterogeneity in their student community. They impart a wholesome education, which develops in Springdalians good citizenship, social responsibility and multi-

faceted talent. The school motto “Vasudaiva Kutumbhakum – the world is a family” permeates the entire curriculum and elucidates its commitment to an integrated secular India and a peaceful and a socially just world.

The Management, staff, alumni and parents share a collective vision and mutual purpose in education so that the students may fruitfully contribute to the wider society and address the realities and concerns of our country and of the world.

Springdales has a clear DIVERSITY POLICY in place, which is reflective of the Constitutional goals of our nation. We believe in the intrinsic right of every child to receive good quality education. So along with others we educate-

  1. a) Children of Economically Weaker Sections of Society (Government to admit)
  2. b) Children with Special Needs 3% as per High Court Order

We have therefore kept the following categories, which are in consonance with the school policy and guidelines of the RTE Act.

For Admission to the 136 seats in the entry class for Dhaula Kuan 2018-19




1.   EWS Category



For the remaining 75% the categories will be :

2.   General Category



3.   Staff Children’s Category



4.   Children with Special Needs Category



5.   Management Quota








The admission under this EWS / DG Category for 25% of the total seats will be done by Directorate of Education.


For this category there will be 64 seats available which will be 47% of the total seats for this class.

The Criteria for selection of these children will be in accordance with the guidelines given. i.e. there will be no interviewing or screening of children or their parents. The whole process will be fair and rational, non-discriminatory, transparent and child-friendly. Admission will be based on the information given and will have to be backed by authentic proofs with documents attached to the form when submitted. Information regarding parents’ professions and educational qualifications will not form a part of the admission criteria. It will be used only for school data processing.

Admission for the General Category of seats will be based on the following criteria as per policy for which points will be given to ensure a rational and fair result. If there is a tie in the points for the last seats to be allotted there will be Random Selection in the form of a Draw of lots to finalise these seats.

 The list of selected and non-selected candidates will be placed on the school’s website showing the points secured.


Children of Staff:

All permanent members of staff have a right to apply for the admission of their children. Grand Children of Staff members who have attained Superannuation in Springdales will be admitted to a maximum of 5% seats under Staff Category.

These candidates must apply through the online registration form but no points are required for this category. If the applications exceed the number of seats allotted there will be a draw of lots. Grandchildren of retired staff will be considered as fee-paying students.

As per the Circular of Directorate of Education Dated: 19-12-2017 Clause 6 of admission criteria.

“The ward of Staff / Employees of any school concerned can have a right for admission to that school but extending the same benefits to the sister concern of that particular school will curtail the right of General Parent’s wards.”

As per the clause quoted above permanent staff members with children / grand children can only apply in the branch of the school where they have served / are serving. The application will be rejected if applied for in any other branch.

Any staff seats un availed at the time of closure of admission will be transferred to General category.
