Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Her nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of the good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.

This program was created by the award-winning producers of the long running Educational and Informational show, Animal Atlas. The program is based on the Common Core State Standards, established last year by the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State Officers. The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an attempt to set a national curriculum to bridge the standards gap between states. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. The program explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. This program aired on WKTV D2.2, Digital Channel 29.2.
