Zucchini Kiddies Lounge
As a children fashion outfit, also focused on the development of the child, Zucchini Kiddies Lounge is tailored in practical ways to unleash the creativity, ingenuity and entrepreneurial abilities in children.
We provide after-school sessions for children to play, learn and interact. Through the lounge we complement the academic endeavours of these children providing them opportunities to acquire life skills as creativity, innovation, problem solving, collaboration, leadership, responsibility, and accountability.
We believe as expressed in the words of Jess Lair that, “Children are not things to be moulded, but people to be unfolded”. We take up children under our wings revealing the exciting world of fashion to them. Our trainings are hands-on, employing multimedia tools for presentation, and also introducing them to the evolving technological age. One distinctive feature of our trainings is bringing what they learn in school in practical and applicable terms in the fashion workroom thereby propagating their need for academic excellence and relevance.
As a fashion outfit, we from time to time participate in Fashion shows and outings showcasing not only our brands but our kids too. Children enrolled in the Modelling Class are trained in the art of modelling, and are actually featured on the runway during fashion shows. They learn to be composed, bold and face a large audience of people among other basic etiquettes.
The various classes are open to children in the Kiddies Lounge:
- Fashion & Craft Class
- Music & Performance Class
- Modeling & Finishing Class
- Business & Enterprise Class
We hold dearly that, “A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can. Why compare one against the other? Each one is different. Each one is special. Each one is beautiful” (Unknown). Each child is treated uniquely and we carefully observe the areas of strengths and interests of each child, thereby honing the child’s skills in such area as specialty.
Children are also taught and made to demonstrate basic business skills of savings, sales, book-keeping, and team-work. We believe as expressed in the words of Ann Landers that “it is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings”.
