none of the examples you state (school registration, 2nd residence, etc.) depend necessarily on having a current carte de séjour although I can see why you might wish to have it all sewn up neatly.

The lady in the MAirie was partially right about the date and the fact that you no longer need a CdS.  However, you can still obtain one by insisting at the Préfecture.

Places at the "kindergarten" (presuming you mean école maternelle) are not yours by right and will depend on availability and the family situation.  As long as you can prove residency (e.g normal EDF bill) then you should get on the list and your chances should not be diminished by having no CdS.  Regarding the property - you had best sit down and consult with the Fisc on that one - I'm not sure how it will be considered seeing as you have a previous period of residency in France sandwiched between Mexico & Monaco.
