I love the whole experience

I’m so happy that my son is attending Head Start in Bushnell.  The experience has been so positive.  They showed me that being a part of my son's schooling was so important and so meaningful.  When my son started, he was smart, but during the school year, he has developed so much more. The staff made me feel so loved and welcome, but it was also good to know someone loved my son as much as I did.

Success Stories
It is a great feeling to work with people that care ...

My name is Heloise Gibbons and I am employed as a teacher at Bushnell Head start. I became employed with Mid Florida Head Start Program in 2005. I started as a teacher assistant at a center in Wildwood (Sumter County) and transferred to Bushnell in 2012.

My favorite parts of my job include the ability to work independently and the people I work with. It is a great feeling to work with people that care about the company and commit to doing a good job. Teaching is a great job because every day I feel successful because I have had some influence on the future through teaching a young child.
