The state government is planning to integrate pre-primary education, including kindergarten and nursery levels, into government-operated schools to align with national education standards. This move is part of the implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP) and aims to bring uniformity to the curriculum. The government is also considering applying the Fee Regulation Act to regulate fees in private pre-primary institutions. Currently, such institutions operate independently, and efforts to regulate them have been ongoing since a 2017 order from the Bombay High Court. The focus is on ensuring parity in educational quality and curriculum without seeking financial control over existing private pre-primary schools. Experts emphasize the need for a uniform legal framework, curriculum, and fee regulations for both government and private pre-primary schools to ensure fairness and transparency.
