Questions about schools, and transferring schools

We're non-EU nationals, so when we arrive to Switzerland (Zurich), we'd have to stay at an apartment provided by ETH until we get our paper work sorted out. Then we'd be able to rent another (more affordable) apartment.

We should be arriving to Zurich in November (weird timing, I know! ).
- Would we be able to enrol our son in Kindergarten at a state school mid semester?

And then when we move (probably mid December), we do have to change schools, don't we? How soon?

Any one with similar circumstances? Please share your experience

Thanks!

He's 5 years old. He'd be enrolled in year 2 kindergarten.
