Really private school...?

Just like looking for the right daycare looking for the right school can be exhausting, upsetting and rewarding all at the same time. I am a worrier I worry about everything and nothing at the same time. So when I moved to NYC I was worried about finding the right Kindergarten for my daughter. I expressed my concern to my family and they told me to stop because my daughter going to school was about a year away; so I listened and now there are no schools available to put her in!!
Talk about stress!
In NYC it turns out you basically have to enroll your child to a school when you're still pregnant. The wait list are outrageous and most of the charter schools are also full. Being that I start school this Fall I NEED to find a school for my daughter. Now it seems my only option is private school which is fine but... I don't have private school money!
So here I am trying to find ways to pay for my school and my daughters with no job and no idea where to start! I realized not too long ago that I may have to take out a loan for my education but didn't want to take out that much $10K max but now with the cost of private school at $30K I have no idea what to do. I really don't want to take out a loan let alone a HUGE one but I can't put off school or hers!
I don't want to think about it so much but I do have a fast approaching deadline, no money and need a plan!
I know this is more of a rant then anything else but I am at a lost.
The up side to all of this is that I will be able to research new ways to make money, research how loans work because if I do end up getting one I want to understand what I'm getting myself into and that I can choose a school that's more to mine and my daughters liking. So far I have found a school that teaches mostly in French and English.
Hey if I'm going to take out a loan to pay for private school I'm going to get as much as I can out of it!

If you have any ideas or know of a good school in NYC PLEASE I repeat PLEASE let me know!
