Our Philosophy

At A Child’s World, we recognize that caring for your child is a privilege. We also recognize that parents have choices with regard to child care. We encourage parents to visit as many facilities as they can before deciding which center best serves their child’s interests and needs. We understand that deciding on a childcare facility is one of the most important and stressful decisions that parents need to make. As such, they need to have many choices and, more importantly, complete peace of mind with their ultimate decision.

We accept children from the ages of 12 months through Kindergarten and school children up to the age of twelve years. We are also approved for NC Pre-K. We believe that each child is unique; our programs encourage your child’s individuality while offering the many benefits of a group experience. Above all, we believe in providing a safe and happy environment for your child, where he or she enjoys learning.

We constantly assess our strengths and weaknesses in relation to the industry, as well as in relation to our competition. We believe that our program is one of the best in the industry that encourages children to learn as well as one that offers them a competitive edge when they enter the school system.

We are conveniently located opposite Fair Grove Elementary School in Thomasville, North Carolina. We also offer transportation for before and after-school care. This site will enable you to obtain information on this location, but please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We highly recommend that you visit us before deciding on your childcare needs. Call today to schedule a tour of our facility!

Famous quotes

“Children are not things to be molded, but are people to be unfolded.” — Jess Lair, author

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” — Dr. Seuss


We strive to teach children the importance of eating healthy at an early age and the social aspects of sharing a table with friends. We understand how important sharing in good conversations are around the meal table, so we encourage teachers to eat with their children at meals. This is also a wonderful time to introduce new foods and talk about healthy eating habits. We offer breakfast, a hot lunch, and a snack, and we are participants in the USDA Food Program. We are also pleased to offer an iron-fortified formula for toddlers upon request by the parent.

Please see our meal times below:

Breakfast 8:00 AM – 8:30 AM

Lunch 11:00 AM – 12:00 AM

PM Snack 2:00-2:30 PM
