 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

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.
