Nursery admissions in India are not easy, you should ask every parent who goes through this. Visiting the schools, targeting the dates, arranging the documents, filling forms, appearing for interactions. Its just goes crazy but before all that you need to prepare and equip yourself with a certain list of Documents which are essential in every school.
Today, I give you a list of documents required for the Nursery Admissions and the essentials you need to be prepared with before the chaos sets in.
Nursery Admission Documents Required
Aadhaar card of the child has been made as a mandatory document. It’s surprising that there have been no notifications from before. So please apply for the achaar card so that you at least have the enrolment no if not the actual card ready during the admission process.
Along with the Aadhaar card, this is another important document which you need. it’s very easy days to get a birth certificate issued. Just visit the nearby municipal corporation with the required documents which is the proof of the birth from the hospital where the child was born.It’s always advisable to apply as soon as the child is born because hospital authorities get it made very easily.
Keep at least two residence proof ready because some schools might surprise you with that. There is a lot of confusion behind what is considered as an address proof.
- Land agreement (Own a house)
- Rent agreement (House is on rent)
- Passport /Aadhaar card/ Voter Id/ Ration card / Electricity bill/Phone bill/BSNL Landline bill (All these documents in the name of any of the parents is valid as an address proof).
Passport size Photographs of the child/Mother/ Father/ Escort
Please keep loads of passport size photographs ready if you are planning to apply in many schools. You would need photographs of the child, parents and the escort who would be picking or dropping them at the bus stop or school.
Identity Proof of Parents
You will need a self-attested Identity proof documents like Aadhaard Card/ Driving license/ Passport/ Pancard.

Children with special needs
Certifcate form the government hospital stating the disability is required.
If you are a single Parent then you need to provide certain legal documents justifying the same. A death certificate in case death of the spouse.
Many schools prefer kids who already had their parents studying there. so keep Copy of character certificate, Alumni Association membership card, Copy of passing certificate of class 10 and 12 or Migration certificate handy.
Every school has a staff quota for its own employees but the supporting documents can be different.Like some require date of employment document, Salary Slip etc.
First born child
