Admission Information for Pre-School Class (Nursery) 2024-2025

Policy, Categories, Criteria and Procedures

The Admission policy reflects 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. They impart a wholesome education, which develops in all Springdalians Good Citizenship, Social responsibility and multi-faceted Talent. The school motto "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam - 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 this education so that the students may fruitfully contribute to 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, therefore children of Economically Weaker Sections of society are admitted through the Delhi Government/ Directorate of Education into our schools.
