Health & Safety

Health, Nutrition and Safety are our top priorities. We use only the best methods.

You trust us to look after your most precious little people. We take extra care to ensure every child is safe, healthy, and happy.

We encourage parents/guardians to get involved in their child’s education and development. As such, your cooperation with our policies will make Hampton Cove Preschool a safe and fair environment for everyone.

The following items are just some of what make our learning center unique and trustworthy for your child's care.

Hampton Cove Preschool Front of Campus

Storm Shelters

Knowing that the safety and well being of your child is your primary concern, we have constructed the two bathrooms in each and every classroom of 8 inch-thick, steel reinforced concrete complete with 18 gauge metal doors to function as storm shelters in the event of a weather emergency. This allows students to shelter in place, in small groups with their regular classmates and teachers to minimize distress and eliminate the need to move through the building during a weather emergency.

Biometric Fingerprint Scan Access

Access to our campus is controlled by a biometric fingerprint scanning system that restricts access to faculty and authorized parents only. Only those parents and family members that have been entered into our database will have access to the school campus. This ensures our students' safety and eliminates concerns that may arise from a system that simply requires a "punched in code" that can easily be shared.

Closed Circuit Camera System

All classrooms as well as our entryway is equipped with closed circuit cameras that send live feeds to our Director and Assistant Director's offices as well as the Office Manager at the reception desk.


Students and faculty are encouraged to wash their hands often. Proper hand washing procedure is covered in all of our classrooms and students and teachers are required to wash their hands after using the restroom, before eating, and after coming in from the playground. These practices, as well as thorough cleaning of each classroom twice each day (after lunch and at the end of the day) help to eliminate the spread of germs.


Hampton Cove Preschool will provide breakfast, an afternoon snack, and nutritious lunches. All lunches meet the USDA guidelines and standards for nutrition and serving size. Fresh fruits and vegetables will be served as often as possible. Any canned fruits or vegetables will be those canned in water without added salt or sugar. Milk will be served with breakfast and lunch, while water will be served with afternoon snack. As whole fruit will be included at least once each day, juice will not be served. Food from home may be substituted in the event that your child has dietary restrictions.

Eating nutritious foods and learning good meal behaviors are important for children experiencing rapid growth and major developmental changes. Meal time can be a time for learning and developing social and small motor skills. Skills such as hand washing, table manners, and carrying on a conversation at the table can be developed and reinforced. Age-appropriate motor skills can be fostered by encouraging children to use utensils and to clear their dishes from the table. Child-sized furniture and hand washing sinks help children feel comfortable and help them learn to be responsible.

Physical Activity

Hampton Cove Preschool understands the importance of incorporating physical activity and motor skill development into the school day and we strive to provide the ideal environment for this to take place. In addition to our three playgrounds and indoor gymnasium, students will take part in music and movement activities in class daily as well as participate in a structured weekly physical education class.

"They want your child to be successful and they have been such a blessing for my family!"

I cannot begin to speak highly enough of Hampton Cove preschool. I have 2 children in separate classes and LOVE all the teachers (which is 7 total)! The staff is wonderful, the education is amazing and most of all every teacher knows my children's names. They are greeted by name every day. They want your child to be successful and they have been such a blessing for my family!

"We are so happy with our choice to use this school!"

We were in need of a change for our one year old and decided to check out Hampton Cove Preschool. We were impressed from the second we walked in the door for a tour. It's clean, bright and cheerful and our daughter has learned so much. The transition from her old school to Hampton Cove Preschool went really well. The teachers provide wonderful care for our little girl and are great with communication. Our daughter is excited to go there every morning. We are so happy with our choice to use this school!

"We couldn't be happier with our decision to move to Hampton Cove Preschool!"

The infant room has been a great place for our daughter to grow and develop. The staff are all very loving and attentive to each baby. They also have a curriculum that includes story time, music time and much more. I recommend Hampton Cove Preschool to all of my friends! It's hard to leave your little ones while you work, but at Hampton Cove Preschool I know she is well taken care of and I never have to worry. We couldn't be happier with our decision to move to Hampton Cove Preschool!
