Elmhurst Learning Center  

Weekday Education

Elmhurst Learning Center has been serving the Bay Area for over 40 years. We offer an academic preschool and kindergarten program that provides cognitive, creative, social and nurturing elements. Students must be at least 2 years (24 months) old to be accepted into our program. They are welcome to remain with us for extended care up to 11 years old if needed.


We offer year round extended care for Kindergarten through 3rd grade (including Park Elementary School students). Our program provides daily a complimentary nutritional; breakfast, family style lunch and a snack in the afternoon. Our menu is designed to be kid friendly yet healthy and nutritious with a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains which go beyond the California state requirements to promote good health. We have a skilled cook on staff which prepares our meals here on site.


Our teachers are academically qualified, CPR and First-Aid Certified. Our teachers are experienced and most of the staff has been employed by Elmhurst Learning Center for over 10 years. They are dedicated, caring and loving people who are committed to build your child’s character, confidence and encourage their spiritual growth. They strive to prepare all of our students academically for the next level in their educational journey.


Elmhurst Learning Center is a Christ-centered program. As a Christian program, we offer an academic biblical curriculum from ACSI and Abeka as the core of our teaching. Along with academics we teach the children bible stories, songs and prayers, providing a firm foundation for your child’s future walk with God. We have a corporate Chapel time every Wednesday from

9:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. which is age appropriate.

Men's Ministry:

Here at Community of Grace, King's Men Ministry of Hayward, it is our desire to bring men together to encourage, have fellowship with each other and challenge us as men to be better husbands, brothers, and friends. We want to help men of God grow deeper in their walk with Jesus Christ.

The church desperately needs men to rise up and lead. Pastors, mothers, spouses, girlfriends, sisters, children...all are praying for the men in their life to experience revival in their relationship with God. Scheduled events are intentionally designed to provide an atmosphere focused on reviving spiritual relationships for men. Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you.Psalm 85:6


God's word speaks about restoration many times. King's Men Ministry is partnering with Ministry Alliance Network to create an environment and provide resources that can be the catalyst for restoring the heart and soul of a man. Restore unto me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. Psalm 51:12


Once a man has experienced revival through the work of the Holy Spirit and God has rightfully been restored to His place of authority over a man's life, that man is ready to be relaunched to serve in his home, community, church and workplace.


And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always to the end of the age. Matthew 28:18-20


We hope you can join us! As Kingdom Builders, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. It is our relationship with God and each other that sets us apart from the spirit of this age and propels us into our destinies in God!
