ZooMoo’s programming grid or schedule is built on a one-hour block format, repeated throughout the broadcast day. Each block is organized into five themed strands; Explore Time, Create Time, Play Time, Puzzle Time and Quiet Time. ZooMoo’s educational experts have stressed that the consistency of this structure is critical for learning and skill-building in preschoolers.
The episodes may seem rigorously formulaic to an adult but to preschoolers this repetition isn’t boring. Each time they watch a show, they experience it in a completely different way. In this way, repetition is a tool to maximize comprehension, hold children’s attention and increase audience participation. Children are not only tolerant of repetition, they respond to it enthusiastically.
Researchers conducting field tests of ZooMoo programming found the attention and comprehension of young viewers increases with each repeated viewing. Initially audience participation is low because children are focusing on unfamiliar material. After five viewings, more of the children’s cognitive resources are available for interaction and participation.
But don't take our word for it! Below is a selection of our shows for you to enjoy.
