Ok so my 4 year old isn't quite old enough for kindergarten and the preschools won't do any testing or shots. Any ideas?

Find a way to meet other moms with diabetic kids. Form a playgroup. You'll have a lot to discuss and eventually might feel comfortable swapping daycare with the others.

 

If you are a working mom, the only answer would be private daycare. Some day, a pump will make things easier.

Have you tried a head start program? Those typically are run in a school building so she would have access to a nurse. I'm also thinking that this could be an Americans with Disabilities Act issue and that testing/shots would fall under reasonable accomodations. Perhaps your doctor will know of somewhere that will take children with health issues.

I went to kindergarten at 4. Have they changed the rules?

 

Yep. It used to be that if your 5th b-day was before a certain date (as late as November for some places) they'd let you start at 4. Now most places (at least public schools) make you wait til the next school year after the 5th b-day.
