COVID-19 Update as of 3/17/20

After much thought and prayer, the leadership of Joyland Daycare and Knollwood Church have together made some decisions about the coming weeks. In laying out these plans, the health and well-being of our Joyland Daycare family was and always will be at the forefront of our decisions. 

Please read the following items carefully:

  • We are aware of the childcare burden that closing will place on each of you. For this reason, we have chosen to remain open until 6:00PM on Friday, March 20th to give you the opportunity to make child-care arrangements.
  • Joyland Daycare will provide childcare for KCS students Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, March 18, 19, and 20th.
  • We strongly urge you to remain at home and practice social distancing during our extended closure. If you choose to travel, please be aware of the current CDC travel recommendations by visiting If you are exposed to an infected person or are exhibiting symptoms of the virus, please see a doctor and notify Joyland Daycare by emailing Mrs. Christina at
  • Our plans are to return to normal operation on Monday, April 6th. If there are any changes to this plan you will be notified through our website.

Though we are taking the situation of COVID-19 seriously, we want to encourage you not to walk in fear but to put your trust in our Heavenly Father. We should be diligent to follow the guidelines of the authorizes and medical professionals but not panic nor be consumed with fear.
We are thankful for the trust you have faithfully given to Joyland Daycare to care for your child. Please know that we are now and will continue to do all that we can to ensure your children are safe.

In Christ,

Christian Johnson, Director
