Carmine Visone teaching important lessons

Carmine Visone teaching important lessons

Carmine Visone, along with his wife Phyllis, have dedicated themselves to the mission of educating the youngest members of our society.

Carmine Visone, along with his wife Phyllis, have dedicated themselves to the mission of educating the youngest members of our society. The Visones strongly believe that early childhood education is the keystone to academic success later in life. They are owners of the Home Away from Home Academy, located on the Holmdel–Aberdeen border on Route 34. Students come to the school from nearby towns such as Rumson, Colts Neck, Holmdel, Morganville, Marlboro, and Manalapan.
Carmine stresses that there are three key ingredients necessary for young children to successfully learn. First is that the children should feel safe. Second is that they should feel loved. Third is that they should be happy in their learning environment.
The Visones have authored a book espousing their philosophy of education. As Carmine states, “Between 0 and 7 years old, human beings acquire 50% of the knowledge they will have through their lives.” That is why he has dedicated himself to education issues and systems for use during those years. The book highlights the Visone teaching method as well as tips on how to select a good preschool, along with other scholastic advice.
Carmine is also very involved in philanthropic work. He is involved with numerous charitable organizations and shares the opportunity to help with his students. The students learn inside the classroom as well as touching the lives of those outside. This year he and his wife are the recipients of the MOEC (Monmouth Ocean Educational Services) 2007 Community Spirit Award in recognition of all the community service activities in which they are involved.
Carmine stated, “My greatest gifts in life are my family and being able to use the school to help so many people.” And that he has done. The school has been, and is presently, involved in many charitable endeavors helping others and empowering its students, even at such a young age, to see that they can make a difference in the world.
The children have a sister-school relationship with a school in Uganda. The school community participates in activities to help children who are much less fortunate, and have just completed an initiative enabling them to send $10,000 worth of books, clothing, and arts and crafts supplies to their sister school.
In 2005 they were awarded the Muscular Dystrophy Humanitarian Award. The children participated in a Hop-a-thon and had the distinction of being the top school in the nation of the NCCA (National Child Care Association). Carmine was invited to Las Vegas for the telethon hosted by Jerry Lewis, where, all told, the organization raised $2.5 million for the Muscular Dystrophy Organization. Carmine has also turned his attention to the Rainbow Foundation. His school was the top contributor of toys for the organization, collecting 800 brand-new items (toys, dolls, bikes, stuffed animals, etc.) for the group. In a local effort to help those in crisis in our community, he has worked to establish a playroom at the Monmouth Medical Emergency Crisis Center. This area serves as a haven for children who are sick, abandoned, or in general distress. Carmine says he feels blessed to have a business that can help so many different organizations.
This is actually Carmine’s second career. He had previously been in the corporate world involved in international banking operations. He brings his entrepreneurial skills to his current business and charitable pursuits.
Carmine loves the community and was glad to have the opportunity to raise his family here. His three adult children – Keith (a business owner in Middletown), Jaime (a speech pathologist in Monroe), and Kristen (an educator at the school) – attended Holmdel schools from elementary through high school. They have lived in Holmdel for more than 17 years.
