People On The Move - 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. 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. He and his wife were also the recipients of  the MOEC (Monmouth Ocean Educational Services) 2007 Community Spirit Award in  recognition of all the community service activities in which they’ve been 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.
