In brief: It is very rare

Childhood onset schizophrenia is very rare and extremely disabling.
Children with such a condition may have visual hallucinations, making it difficult to judge reality from fantasy. Behavioral disturbances are commonly a part of the condition as well. I saw a tv show about a girl who seemed like she was born with it.
