How early can you enroll your child in kindergarten in NY?

My son will be 4 on September 26th. He can already read very well - example all Dr. Seuss books, and pretty much any children's book with little help. He also writes very well already - example, he can write individual words that i ask him to write, and he spells the words by himself too (but if I ask him to write a story about a picture, the spacing between the words and some spelling is off a little and can be only a bit hard to understand). He also knows his numbers to 100, his days of the week, months of the year, some French, some Spanish( (basic). He knows his colors, opposites, he draws well, colors in the line etc... He is very intuitive, and mostly well-behaved and mannerly. I recently moved from FL and I would like to put him in Kindergarten because I want to keep him stimulated enough where he doesn't get bored and get into mischief. Would I be able to get him tested? And if so, how do I go about that? Any thoughts or advice please? I will be researching schools and calling them up individually soon...
