Zucchini Kiddies Lounge
As a children fashion outfit, also focused on children development, Zucchini Kiddies Lounge is designed to discover and hone their creative skills. Our engagement with the children brings what they learn in school in practical and applicable terms in the lounge thereby propagating their need for academic excellence.
The Zucchini Kiddies Lounge is tailored in practical ways to unleash the creativity, ingenuity and entrepreneurial abilities in children. Activities in the Lounge is hinged on play as a creative tool for children’s learning and interaction. 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 engagement with the children is to bring what they learn in school in practical and applicable terms in the lounge thereby propagating their need for academic excellence and relevance.
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”.

Kiddies Movie Night
The “Kiddies Movie Night” will feature value based movies such that the children learn through movies and plays. Creating a cinematic effect, with the popcorns and ice cream to go with it; they are able to mirror the real life world through the screens, subsequently apply what they have learnt in their everyday life.
lingokids.com succinctly expresses what we intend to achieve with the “Kiddies Movie Night”; “As with fables and children’s stories, children’s movies are an excellent tool for educating them. They can be very useful to show children different cultures, to teach them history, accustom them to fundamental values, show them how to think…all in a simple and entertaining way.”
