About the Provider


Visiting our daycare centers is the best way to get to know us!

Come meet our teachers and experience our amazing classrooms to see first-hand how we implement our philosophy. We make time for families and understand that your questions are important.

Our daycare centers are inspired by children and designed to incorporate national standards in a unique, safe learning environment that challenges children to learn. Our forty years of experience enable us to know what is important for children to be successful during these important early years.

When you come to Creative World River Walk, you are greeted with an open-air feel as you step into our beautiful and unique Exploratorium. This room is essential to our Preschool Curriculum, but is also utilized for special visitors and our school get-togethers such as festivals. We have separate wings for our Toddler/Two and Preschool classrooms which are all spacious and colorful, filled with developmentally appropriate toys and activities to meet every child's learning style. We also offer state of the art playground equipment for an enjoyable time outside.

EST. 1970…and still growing!

It is because we know childcare that we have had a long history of success. Our founders, Billie and Duane McCabe opened their first school in Independence, Missouri in 1970. Their unique vision was quickly embraced as they expanded and operated up to 45 childcare centers in seven states.

The Creative World School tradition has bridged generations as their daughters became part of the company. Their youngest daughter, Dr. Marianne Whitehouse, combines the experience of being raised in Creative World School with a Ph.D. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education in her position as President. This dynamic family team began franchising in 1999. Now there are a total of 22 schools in 5 states and growing.

This past year, over 4,000 families chose Creative World School to educate and care for their young children. We are looking for committed individuals that share our vision to continue our story in the future.

We opened our doors in 2008, and our state of the art facility has quality, age appropriate classrooms ready for learning and fun for Infants through School Age children.
