With the changing of the California kindergarten enrollment age cutoff, my daughter will be a month too young for enrollment in public schools in 2013. What are my options?

We live in the Bay area (San Bruno), California. My daughter was born in mid-Nov. She would be too young to enroll in public school next year. I heard that parents can put those kids in private school for a year, then the kid can transfer to public school to be placed in 1st grade. Is this true? This will require a private school to accept her for kindergarten with her birthday. Are there such private schools close to where I live? I read a little bit that there will be not public program for "transitional kindergarten" in CA due to budge cut. My daughter is well rounded so I think she's ready for kindergarten next year, I don't want to let her stay in preK for another year. I appreciate anybody who knows about this situation in the Bay area to give me some advice. Thanks a lot.
