Not that hard. I mean, if you pick 3 schools you may be happy with and make it for the enrollment and interview deadlines, you should get into at least 1 of them. But if your child is a pre-schooler, I highly recommend checking out the public program. It's very good. I have friends who make 700k+ combined a year whose kids are in public Pre-k now and we just had a mommy happy hour yesterday an we all agreed that we are happier with the public pre-k than the private preschools we all had our kids at the year before (and we had our kids in all different schools).

The most competitive to get in would be Dwight Englewood over in Englewood. I do have 2 friends whose kids are going there and there is a small Hoboken group of families whose kids go to DE who all know each other, carpool, etc. If your wife is a SAHM, you might look into that.

Hoboken is really a mecca for young families these days. Tons of parks, restaurants are family friendly (we have a great Biergarten and Pier13 in summer is great), there are a lot of mom's groups and dad's group. It's very easy to find your circle here--at least, it has been for me.

I'm not sure where you are moving from, but I would just fly here for a long weekend and make appointments with some brokers and see some apartments/condos and check out the neighborhood. My husband was set on living in NYC when he accepted a job here, but I had an old college roommate that was living in Hoboken and loving it, so we went apartment hunting in several neighborhoods (financial district, Jersey City, Hoboken) and ended up liking the feel of this side of the river a bit better. The city is right there when you want it, but it's less frenetic and more calm on this side with a small town feel in an urban atmosphere.
