 If working an event and additional families with kids show up expecting to be accommodated, first check in with the onsite manager on what to do. Politely let the parent know that they are not registered and that you'll need one moment to speak with your manager.

if you are the manager, be sure to politely let the parent know that they have not registered (if they have not already indicated) and work quickly to remedy the issue. If you have the capacity, let the parent know you'll need to take down their information, and that we will contact them later to request payment through an invoice. If you are at full capacity, kindly let the parent know that and apologize that we could not accommodate this time. Let them know of any upcoming events and encourage them to signup and register online beforehand.
