Delhi: Nursery admission age to remain at 3 years
New Delhi: Refusing to interfere with age criteria and admission of toddlers in pre-schools and pre-primary classes, the Delhi High Court on Friday said that age limit should not be raised from 3 years.
The court passed its order while responding to a plea seeking its direction for fixing the minimum age criteria for children seeking nursery admissions in the national capital.
The age for admissions in nursery currently stands at 3 years. However, the Ganguly committee had in 2007 proposed that the age limit be raised to 4.
According to the committee, children were emotionally, mentally and physically better equipped to start school at the age of 4. It would also reduce the pressure on parents as well as children.
However, the Delhi government had asked for an extension of the time limit to apply this age criteria, saying it would not be feasible to adopt such guidelines in a hurried manner.
