Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Set on a space station in an unknown solar system. The station is populated by five characters and one 3-eyed octopus of unknown derivation. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation on incident that grows into a predicament of some sort needing a solution. While these predicaments take place on a space station populated by animal characters and aliens from different galaxies, the issues and resolutions resonate for a preschool audience. Through comedy and zippy action, our target audience sees how the characters learn lessons for practical living such as how: to keep track of things that belong to you, practice good habits, clean up a space when you've made a mess, rebound from a failure or embarrassing incident, or resist urge to blame others for your mistakes.

The shop's one employee, Kelly doubles as Chica's nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. In each episode Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgment, and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure-a fantasy transformation to animation--where Bunji and Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio- emotional development, and Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that ittakes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills.
