Annedroids is a science-based action-adventure series for 6-9 year olds. It follows 11-year old genius and kid-scientist Anne, who loves nothing more than doing cool experiments. Anne has invented and built her own amazing androids to help her out. Far more than mere 'robots' (simple machines that can only perform single tasks), Annedroids are thinking, feeling creations with curious, endearing personalities. Thanks to their insatiable curiosity, Anne's experiments always lead to unforeseen complications, hijinks, and misadventures. One day, new kid on the block, Nick, discovers Anne's secret junkyard laboratory. Nick enlists the help of Shania, his slightly eccentric neighbour, and they soon befriend Anne and her mechanical companions. Nick and Shania have uncanny ways of figuring out the real-life solutions to Anne's scientific problems. Needless to say, when two girls, one boy and three androids join forces, excitement and discovery follow.

Odd Squad is a live-action comedy about two kids, Agent Olive and Agent Otto, who work for a government agency run by kids in suits who are equipped with the world's most advanced and unpredictable gadgetry. Whenever anything strange, unusual or just plain nuts (including giant nuts falling out of the sky) happens, it's Odd Squad's job to put things right again. Odd Squad has a fun, goofy, irreverent style that includes sight gags, one-liners, absurd situations and plenty of slapstick. Embedded in each episode is a math concept aimed at kids in grades 1-2. For example, in one episode, Olive and Otto are called-on to help a pizza delivery lady who keeps doubling herself. In the process of helping her, Olive and Otto also explore and learn what happens when you double a number. Odd Squad is a fun and engaging way for kids to become familiar with, and master, key math concepts and operations.

Chirp, Squawk and Tweet are best friends who use their imaginations and everyday objects to get them in – and out of – fantastically fun adventures and hilariously sticky predicaments. What would it be like to be a pirate or travel in space, dive underwater on a dolphin or ride a dinosaur? Chirp, Tweet and Squawk may imagine themselves on grand quests through jungles and on spy missions, but ultimately their imaginations get them into trouble. That's where the Mail Squirrel comes in handy. Each day, at the just the right time, the Mail Squirrel drops off a package for Chirp. Everyday items like handheld fans, elastic bands or paper clips become play-savers when Chirp and his friends engineer them into amazing gadgets. By using characters kids relate to and laugh with, coupled with situations they're engaged and entertained by, Chirp, like its namesake magazine, opens up the world to preschoolers, one awesome adventure at a time.

An all-star cast of celebrity comedians share the screen with 18 true-to-life, photo-realistic dinosaurs in the live-action, CGI adventure series Dino Dan, starring Jason Spevack (Fever Pitch, Sunshine Cleaning) as Dan Henderson. Dan – nicknamed 'Dino Dan' by his friends – is an ordinary 10-year old boy with an extraordinary obsession: he eats, sleeps and breathes dinosaurs. A typical day for Dan isn’t complete unless he’s racing a T-Rex on his school track, finding a Pterodactylus in his attic or getting a baby Brachiosaurus back to its mom. In Dino Dan, you don’t need to imagine dinosaurs - because they’re everywhere! But while Dino Dan is an expert in all things dinosaurs, he also specializes in getting his willing crew of classmates, teachers and family pulled into his larger-than-life adventures. Personalities including Andrea Martin, Mark McKinney, Kevin McDonald, Sean Cullen, Jayne Eastwood and Jon Dore make guest appearances in the series.

The continuing adventures of Dino Dan go to the next level with 16 new prehistoric creatures, a new gang of friends and another Henderson brother who can see dinosaurs. That’s right – now Dan's younger brother, Trek, can see the dinosaurs too! At eight years old, Trek has become just as fascinated with dinosaurs as his big brother – and with his own funny way of putting dinos into any situation. With Dan away helping their world-famous paleontologist father, Trek has taken up the mantle of 'paleontologist in training' and has started to complete the experiments in Dan’s Dino Field Guide. Trek loves dinosaurs for all the reasons that Dan does but he has not turned into a mini-Dan. Where Dan loves research and experiments, Trek is all about thrills and chills. Which means that while Trek will perform the dino experiments left over in Dan's field guide, most of Trek's contact with dinos will be action-filled adventures!

This documentary / interview series takes viewers into the parenting trenches by trying to answer some of the questions that bombard modern parents. Parents of the kids in The Jungle Room start by watching funny, revealing footage of their children playing in the relatively adult-free environment of The Jungle Room. Together with the mums and dads, we get to observe the world of kids away from their parents - a world parents rarely get to see. The parents then ask experts for their opinions on potentially difficult questions that may arise after observing their kids in The Jungle Room. How should we respond to early use of inappropriate language? How can we best support our children after the death of a family member? What sort of language should we use in answering the inevitable questions about sex? Being a parent can feel like a 24-hour-a-day ambush. Gorilla Parenting helps to make it an adventure.

I dare you to make a crazy noise and jump up and down 3 times!' Hosted by Daniel Cook, I Dare You encourages kids to exercise while having fun.

Each action builds on the previous one, leading to a finale in which all three dares are combined into a final fitness medley. Daniel finishes out each episode with a healthy snack such as fruit or milk. I Dare You preceded Roll Play and Giver as the first of many Sinking Ship shows that encourage kids to get up, get active and get involved. Always prompting the audience to move instead of sitting still, I Dare You is a healthy, active push in the right direction for couch-bound kids who needn't be couch-bound.

Seven charismatic preschoolers reveal the true world of childhood in this surprising, charming unscripted series that peeks inside a preschool daycare room. Leading our intrepid friends through their daily romp is their patient teacher, Anthony. Echoing the structure of a real daycare environment, a day in The Jungle Room follows a schedule: there's play time; snack time; outside time and … the daily guest! It's a stable routine that can be surprising! Snack time might feature an exotic new food to try, the guest may be a zoo-keeper who brings a live boa constrictor and play time could involve building your own working volcano. Of course, in daycare, as in life, there are tears, tantrums, conflict, resolution and more than a little friendship. Fun to watch for preschoolers and their parents, The Jungle Room is a window into the daily world of kids in daycare.

Sinking Ship's first show was its breakout success. The award-winning, live-action preschool series This is Daniel Cook features its six-year-old namesake as he explores, learns and creates with everyone from chocolatiers and musicians to firefighters and dog trainers.

From the fantastic to the everyday, This is Daniel Cook shows kids the wonders of the world around them through the eyes of someone their own age. The audience experiences Daniel's adventures as he does, at his own pace and from his own perspective (somewhat under four feet). Hailed for its innovative simplicity and refreshingly kid-centred approach, This is Daniel Cook continues to be a very popular viewing experience for both kids and their parents. 'Here we are!'
