At Morning Star Daycare, our mission is simple. We want to provide a safe, secure place for children to learn and grow. We teach that God created each child special and that all children are to be treated as God's children. Our goal is to instill Christian values, morals, positive self-image and readiness skills for school in all our students through sound curriculum and quality teaching.
Morning Star Daycare opened in 1994 as a ministry of Nixa First Assembly of God. It is a part of The Upstream Children’s Ministries of the church. The executive staff includes children's pastor and daycare administrator John Werner and daycare director Donita Bivins. Anita Werner serves as our education director.
Our teachers are the pride of the school here at Morning Star. They are hard working, friendly individuals that truly care about the children in the daycare. Every child at the daycare becomes like family. While degrees are important, affection, patience, enthusiasm and quality experience in working with children are the main considerations in hiring staff.
