Director Spotlight

Sheila Gibson - Director, Children's Nest Day School Northdale

Sheila Gibson has served in the early childhood community for the past 22 years. 14 of those years have been with Children’s Nest Day School. She thrived as a VPK teacher, became a team lead and is now the director of their Northdale site.


This past year has posed many challenges due to COVID restrictions and precautions. Parents that had been actively involved were no longer able to enter the center. Due to the restrictions, Sheila implemented the GroupMe App to keep parents and families connected. On this app, Sheila and her staff post pictures of activities, upcoming events, and have ongoing communication with families.


Sheila has always enjoyed working with children but has really found her niche in being a director. She values being a part of the lives of the children, watching them grow, supporting her staff and being involved with families of the children that she serves.

We celebrate Shelia for her dedication and experience in providing quality early childhood education in Hillsborough County.
