A: It was my dream since childhood.

This implies that the dream is something in the past now. You've moved on.

B: It has been my dream since childhood.

The dream is most likely still very much alive. Present perfect describes a situation that can be in the past, but it has an unfinished, continuing or indeterminate quality to it. The only way to state this stronger, if that is your wish, would be to become more explicit.

It has been my dream since childhood, and it has never gone away.
