World of Care
“There was no other specialized child care program that offered the kind of full-time nursing care that Nicholas needed. I don’t know where we’d be today without PACT.”
-World of Care Parent
PACT’s World of Care specialized child care center is designed to meet the individual needs of children who have medical conditions requiring daily nursing care and children with developmental disabilities who require multiple therapies (physical, occupational, or speech/language).

World of Care is accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education and licensed by the Maryland Office of Child Care Administration.
