Kindergarten admission

We are locating to Mass this summer. We hope to be in a school district west of Hyde Park. Our child is going to be 5 on Sept. 19. Are there any school districts within this area that accept this age? Is there testing for readiness that would allow her to start at 5 if the required age is 6?

In order to learn about the Kindergarten age requirements, I would suggest contacting the school district directly as all districts and states have different policies on this.
