Our Strong Core Values At Care-O-World


We lead with kindness every single day, both professionally and personally.


We play for a reason; it’s how children explore & learn, and we do it every single day!


We are always eager to teach and learn! We accomplish an amazing amount of important work.

Our Teachers Make All The Difference!

Highly Degreed Educators Who Absolutely LOVE What They Do

There is no doubt about it: a community is built by its members. Our teaching team will both guide you through the parenting challenges you experience, and help your child build deeper emotional connections, develop life skills, and prepare them for school.

What Makes Our Teaching Team Exceptional?

The North Carolina Birth-through-Kindergarten license allows Early Childhood Lead Teachers to work with young children, from birth through age 5 years, with and without disabilities, including those at-risk, and their families.

Get Daily Communication With Your Parent App: ProCare

When getting in touch with your child’s teacher is at the front of your mind, it’s also at the tip of your fingers with your 2-way communication app: ProCare Parent. Expect sweet pictures and daily updates, plus nap and diaper info for babies.

Exciting, Hands-On Learning Meets Kids Where They Are

Forget dry worksheets! Your child connects with new ideas at their own pace with interactive, age-appropriate projects from the Creative Curriculum® and engaging STEAM activities, all aligned with NC FELD and at a pace that suits them so they can grow and thrive.

STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

Smaller Classes Mean Your Child Gets More Attention

One less student per teacher than required by the state makes for a much more comfortable classroom. In a smaller group, teachers tailor lesson plans to your child and give them the one-on-one attention they need to hit their developmental milestones and learning goals.
