Ms. Michelle, Director
Hello! My name is Michelle Hampton, I am the director here at Providence Preschool. This will be my 4th year here at Providence.
I was born in Hollywood, FL and moved to Harrisburg, NC when I was 9. I graduated from UNCC with a B.S. in Psychology and a Minor in Children's Literature and Childhood Studies in 2009. I have 3 children of my own, Logan (7), Connor (6 ) and Hadley (1). I love baking, traveling and spending time with my family. My favorite places to visit are the beach and Disney World.
I look forward to an amazing year with all your children. I am so blessed to be able to spend my days with the wonderful children here at Providence Preschool

This will be my 8th year at Providence Preschool! I feel so honored to be a part of such a special place where children learn and grow all while learning of God's love each day. I am origianlly from Maryland, where I attended Towson University, studying Early Childhood Education. I moved to North Carolina 10 years ago. I have 3 children, Noah, Eli & Gabriel. All 3 of my boys have attended Providence Preschool! I am so excited for another wonderful school year!
Ms. Lynn, Office Staff
I have an Associate’s Degree in the Healthcare field specializing in Administrative work, and enjoyed 15 years as a Medical Office Manager/Medical Assistant. After moving to Charlotte 24 years ago, I decided I had another calling…. motherhood! We have 3 children Jordan, Morgan, and Ryan. My special interests include: Being a Plexus Ambassador, reading, painting, cooking/baking, gardening, crafting, and finding a cure for Neurofibromatosis! I spent many hours at our children’s elementary schools volunteering, tutoring, as a PTA board member and treasurer, and classroom grade parent. I found my little niche of heaven at Providence Preschool 10 years ago. I have worn many hats at our school. I started out as an office aide and substitute teacher and moved into teaching. Three years ago, I moved back into the office and took on the Specials Instruction. I love watching each child grow in knowledge and in their spiritual life. It is such a privilege to be a part of their learning journey! I enjoy watching them come into school their first day nervous and shy, and graduate proud and confidant children of God! I still cry at each graduation. I am so blessed to be a part of a work community that prays each morning, lifts each other up when necessary, and get as many hugs as my arms can hold! I can’t thank you all enough for entrusting your child to our care.
Hi, this will be my fourth year working at Providence Preschool. It has been a wonderful place of refuge for me. I love going to work everyday and seeing all the little ones grow and learn new things. I am very blessed to be a part of their world for this little while. I have a degree in Business Administration. I started out as a substitute teacher and office staff. Last year, I was given a two year old class of my own and I had a blast. It was a wonderful experience but I decided to go back to the office this year since my boy is still very young. I have two kids, a girl and a boy. My daughter is 8 and my son is only two. Maybe one day I can go back to being a teacher. Whatever it is, I trust the Lord will show us our path in life.
