Hope Childcare Center

Contact Us: (417) 732-9162


We believe that each child is a unique individual created by God. We recognize and work to enhance each child’s mental, emotional, social, physical and spiritual needs. We encourage feelings of self worth and individuality. This empowers children to find their identity, purpose and strength as they search for and find their God given gifts and live their lives for Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
