We are a huge Netflix family. I tend to watch sci-fi/fantasy shows while my husband watched cartoons such as Family Guy. My daughter, who is 3, loves to choose her own shows on Netflix. The sense of independence she feels when she opens the Netflix app on our iPad is priceless. Here are her favourites and my picks for best Netflix Canada shows for preschoolers.

Paw Patrol is a 30 minute cartoon about a group of dogs who work together to solve problems. Each dog has a job and their own accessories. My daughter’s favourite is Marshall a dalmatian who is also a firefighter. Marshall is a ‘silly goose’ to use my daughter’s words and always finds himself in some sort of trouble.
Team Umizoomi is a math based show which teaches children about counting, shapes and patterns. The show encourages to viewer to develop their “Mighty Math Powers”. On Team Umizoomi there is a mix of animation with live action children and their problems that must be solved using math.
Dora the Explorer
Dora the Explorer centers around Dora and her talking backpack and best friend Boots (who is a monkey). In each episode Dora and Boots are faced with obstacles that they have to solve (with “assistance” from the viewing audience) relating to riddles, the Spanish language, or counting.
My daughter loves this movie. It is the ‘Mininon’ movie as far as she is concerned. She loves the minions and waits until they come on the screen. I really enjoyed Despicable Me as well and it’s a great movie for the whole family.
Yo Gabba Gabba!
My daughter is a HUGE Yo Gabba Gabba! fan but honestly I am not too into this show. She loves to dance along to the songs and I like how the show encourages kids to be active but otherwise the show confuses me. Yo Gabba Gabba! showcases individuality and doing what you love.
Bubble Guppies follows a group of preschool mer-people throughout their day. Each episode has a theme and a huge emphasis on routine and time is place in the show. Bubble Guppies is a very light hearted show with silly jokes and situations.
Okay, let’s hear it. What are your favouite Netflix Canada shows for preschoolers. Or which ones can you not stand?
