Celebrating of Serving Our Community

A Reliable Values Formation Center
for Children

Company History

Morning Star Daycare opened in 1994 as a ministry of Nixa First Assembly of God. Currently headed by Director Donita Bivins, our center looks forward to making a difference in the lives of your children.

Mission Statement

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.

Our Staff

At our school, we take pride in our committed, hardworking, and friendly teachers who truly care about the children in the daycare. We treat every child like family.

While we recognize the importance of educational degrees, affection, patience, enthusiasm, and quality experience in working with children are our main considerations in hiring staff members.
