Bromsgrove - June 2019 newsletter

Staff Update
We would like to congratulate Ellie on completing her Level 3 qualification in Childcare.
Well done Ellie for all your hard work.

G.E.M award
Mays Winner was Mel C. Mel has received some lovely nominations from parents. One parent mentioned that Mel has made quite an impression on their child, and that their child is very fond of her. The parent finds the level of detail in Mel's observations on the eyLog system a joy to read. She is perceptive and describes the scenes well so the parent is able to picture their child doing the activity.
Well done Mel!
Don’t forget you can nominate a team member for a G.E.M. award by emailing bromsgrove@myshootingstars.com or filling out a nomination slip in reception.
