Calendar & Hours of Operation 

Free To Be is open year round, except for one week during the Winter Break and two weeks in August.  Free To Be’s hours of operation coincide with the University's five day work week, Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. until July 3rd. Free To Be is closed for a Winter Break in December and a Summer Break at the end of August


The Center provides top quality care for potty trained children between 3 and 5 years of age for families within the Stockton community.  A limited number of full-time openings are available to the outside community.


Enrollment at Free To Be follows Stockton's registration schedule for classes.  Registration dates are emailed to students, faculty, and staff and posted on our website. A $50.00 non-refundable fee is required each semester. After attending one of the scheduled tours and filling out the registration paperwork, families are emailed a complete packet which is due at the time of orientation.

Please note: 

At this time we are no longer adding families to our wait-list due to current enrollment numbers. Please check back in Spring 2021 for information on the 2021-2022 school year. Thank you.
