Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Dino Squad promotes positive social learning using the principles of social learning theory. It portrays attractive and engaging young role-models enacting the kinds of positive social behavior and values we would like for our audience to adopt. The series combines children's fascination with dinosaurs, their attraction to science-fiction or superhero characters who have the ability to "morph" from human status into super beings, and the appeal of a group of five, highly individualistic and appealing teens, to attract and engage young viewers. Each episode portrays these teens facing and finding solutions to problems that are relevant to contemporary youngsters. In so doing, each episode provides young viewers templates and/or standards that they can employ to navigate issues they typically encounter in their own, daily lives. Interpersonal questions as how and why to work with people they do not really understand and confront issues such as sharing credit, using each person's strengths while ignoring weaknesses, and getting along in highly frustrating situations.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Dino Squad promotes positive social learning using the principles of social learning theory. It portrays attractive and engaging young role-models enacting the kinds of positive social behavior and values we would like for our audience to adopt. The series combines children's fascination with dinosaurs, their attraction to science-fiction or superhero characters who have the ability to "morph" from human status into super beings, and the appeal of a group of five, highly individualistic and appealing teens, to attract and engage young viewers. Each episode portrays these teens facing and finding solutions to problems that are relevant to contemporary youngsters. In so doing, each episode provides young viewers templates and/or standards that they can employ to navigate issues they typically encounter in their own, daily lives. Interpersonal questions as how and why to work with people they do not really understand and confront issues such as sharing credit, using each person's strengths while ignoring weaknesses, and getting along in highly frustrating situations.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Come spend a 'day in the life' with the monsters at Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside.After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.
