THE BRONX - Mayor Bill de Blasio was in the Bronx to promote his universal pre-kindergarten plan during a Sunday morning service. 

De Blasio spoke to members of the Heavenly Vision Church in Jerome Park about the importance of pre-K and after school programs for all New York City children. 

The mayor says that people shouldn't be surprised if kids don't reach their full potential because they aren't receiving the help to do so.
