Results Statement: This system will ensure all Parents’ Night Out events are organized and promoted efficiently to have a sold-out event. If this system is followed, we will maximize each Parents’ Night Out event. In addition, parents will feel safe and secure about allowing us to care for their children at all times. This is both a revenue-generating and lead-generating event.

How it runs:
Open Play will be available throughout the night from 6-7:30 p.m.
Get pizza, waters, and cookies at 7:30 pm
Clean up kids and let them go back out to play
One staff member stays in the party room to clean it the other watches the kids
At 8:30 have the kids pick out what they want to lay on and bring it to the floor closest to the office.
Project the movie on the wall, kids are to be watching the movie not playing

Clean-Up: After 10 p.m. staff should begin picking up, stacking mats, and wiping down tables as much as possible. As children are picked up, the adult staff can assist in accordance with all closing systems.
After Action: An after-action report will be written the following business day – to be completed by the shift lead/manager on duty. The report should be linked in the corresponding Trello card and archived for future use.
