Delhi parents are rushing to Gurgaon to secure seat....?

As nursery admission in Delhi schools have not started, a number of parents are rushing to Gurgaon to secure a seat for their little ones. Some parents said Gurgaon schools offer more choice, both in terms of curriculum and infrastructure.
While admission process in Gurgaon schools started on August 1, Delhi schools will open their counters only be the end of the year.
“Delhi schools offer fewer seats and the admission process is comparatively tough. But in Gurgaon, the scenario is the opposite. Also, most schools provide bus services to Delhi and so admitting my child in another city is not a problem,” Latika Pant of Green Park in New Delhi, said.
Schools such as Delhi Public School (Sector 45), DPS (Sushant Lok), The HDFC School, Suncity World School, Amity International School, Millennium School, Ridge Valley School, Vega Schools, Lotus Valley International School, Scottish High International School and KR Mangalam School have already started their admission process. Others are likely to follow suit by the end of the month.
Parents also said Gurgaon schools are affiliated to different educational boards, including CBSE, Cambridge IGCSE, ICSE and International Baccalaureate (IB), giving them more choice.
Jasmine Joy of Aya Nagar said, “My husband and I have studied in schools affiliated to ICSE and we want our child to study under the same board. Gurgaon has maximum number of schools in Delhi-NCR with the same board.”
“The better schools around my home are on the other side of the border, in Gurgaon. I do not want my child to compromise on her development and education. Plus, most of the schools are offering at least 100 seats, giving more chance to my daughter,” Manju Pande of Kapashera said.
Authorities of Gurgaon schools said they are getting more application and enquiries from Delhi this year.
Avishek Roy, head, community outreach, Vega Schools, said, “A lot of parents, especially from south Delhi localities such as Chhatarpur, Aya Nagar and Saket, are enquiring about the school. We are a new establishment and a lot of queries are coming forward from word-of-mouth.”
Peeya Sharma, principal of Ryan International School, Sector 40, said even last year the school received 100 applications from Delhi. “There are a number of reasons for parents to apply here. The most important is early admissions and more seats. We are expecting a similar or higher number of requests this year too.”
Though most institutions are welcoming parents from Delhi, a few schools are also denying their requests.
“Parents from Delhi are coming to the school daily to take or submit forms as the admission process is considerably easy in Gurgaon. But, we are not accepting the requests as the school is not providing transport facility to Delhi and giving the children admission would compromise with their security,” Anita Makkar, principal, The HDFC School in Sector 57, said.

Gurgaon School Admissions 2017-18

Each year parents queue up in front of schools armed with some little information about the reputation of the school, a form and some sort of formal payment just to be able to enter the hallowed portals that will take their tender toddlers to success in the world. However, for the academic session 2017-18 schools in gurgaon have started nursery admission in a departure from the schedule followed last year, leaving parents confused. The admission process, which usually commences around mid-August, has already started in some schools and others are also expected to start the process soon. Parents complain that absence of an academic calendar for schools in Gurgaon is landing them in troubles.
Schools such as The HDFC School, The Millennium School, Delhi Public School Sushant Lok, Lotus Valley International School and Kunskapskollan have already started their admission process. Scottish High International, Ridge Valley School will open the registration process on August 1. Other schools, including DPS Sector 45 and Ryan International School, are also likely to start the process by mid-August.
Education experts suggest that the early start of admission by some schools is due to growing competition among them. A large part of the issue in nursery admissions is around school autonomy. Delhi seems to be leading this battle, but it was pretty much sure that the same issues will travel to other states too. The question here is should schools select their students? Should schools have autonomy in deciding the criteria for admission to their portals. The answer seems to be an obvious yes in case of the private schools.
Every year, more and more schools with better infrastructure and technology come ups in Gurgaon. These institutes give a strong competition to the existing ones, which is why schools want to start admission before others. On the other hand, schools say that they have started early admission to give more time to the parents to complete the formalities. However, for the comfort of the parents, the schools are providing forms both offline and online.
In a perfect world there would be enough nursery and school places where all children would join in small groups and be loved and nurtured as they learn. We do not live in a perfect world and there is a shortage of quality education places. From where we are, some competition for scarce seats is inevitable. Even if government schools were up to standard – and there seems to be evidence that many have slipped – there are not enough seats for all.
And the battle continues – what is the best way to allocate nursery seats? Who should get the first chance and who can be left out? Is access to excellence in education a game of chance?
