Our Community

Creative World School at Noland Road is conveniently located by the intersection of Hwy 40 and Noland Road, next to the Squeaky Clean Car Wash and Old Time Pottery.

We understand that safe and efficient transportation is important for many working parents with young children. Our buses provide transportation to and from these neighboring elementary schools: William Southern, Fleetridge, Norfleet, Creative World Elementary, and The Schoolhouse.

At our Creative World School Noland Road location, we are proud to serve our surrounding communities of Kansas City, Raytown, Independence and Blue Springs. Stop by today and take a tour to see our curriculum in action!


You will see iSTEAM in action when you visit our Creative World School Exploratorium™. Our hands-on approach integrates STEAM learning opportunities to develop critical thinking skills and investigate real-world ideas. Investigating real questions through inquiry learning is the foundation of our curriculum. Inquiry is the “i” in iSTEAM and encourages a student’s curiosity as they develop problem solving skills and build a foundation for lifelong learning.

My 7 year old went to this daycare before and after school for 1yr. They are affordable, flexible and very helpful with getting your child to and from school (in district) and covered half and off days easily. My son liked it there. The staff was friendly. He was excited to go, and often upset to leave. He liked the outdoor playground the most. Its very nice, and big! Overall… great place! Would definitely take my kids there again. - Jeremiah Ross
