Casa del Carmen Academy hosted a special visitor Monday, March 27, 2017. Mayor Jim Kenney visited the Philadelphia pre-K program (PHLpreK), located in North Philadelphia. PHLpreK is a city-sponsored early childhood program.

Casa del Carmen Academy, a Keystone Star 3 program, provides full-service subsidized early childhood education that equips children between the ages of three and five with the knowledge, skills, and abilities they will need to be successful in school. Casa’s early childhood education professionals utilize research-based structured play activities to help young children be well prepared for entering Kindergarten.  Further, once they have graduated from the program, after-school and full-day summer camp programs offer a safe place to continue their growing and learning.
