The first stanza of the poem Childhood begins with the question “when did my childhood go”? But the last stanza begins with “where did my childhood go ?” Do you think that change is significant?

Yes, the change from ‘when’ to ‘where’ is certainly significant. It shows that in the third stanza the poet has got his answer to the question ‘when.’ Now, in the final stanza he wants to know where the childhood has gone.
