    Hi @Layaa

    to answer your questions...

    1. Yes, you should be able to make admissions in Dec for your 4yr old in pre-k, if the public school zoned to the community that you will be living has the pre-k option. Also a couple of other factors associated with pre-k admission is income level and English being the secondary language for your kid if she isn't conversant in the language.
    However, admissions in pre-schools i.e. private schools are always an option.

    2. Rental procedure for an apartment is leasing method - month-to-month / 6-months / 1-year period.

    3. Riata apartments is just 2-mins away from Visa office. Good number of Indians live there. Spicewood springs is a great neigborhood about 10-mins away from Visa office. The schools in Spicewood springs are top-rated hence the apartments and houses are little high priced there :)

    Good luck with your more.
