Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Zou is a French series based on the Zou books by Michel Gay. Targeted for children age 2-5, each episode explores the kind of learning issues that emerge from every day encounters in the life of a preschool child. If Zou plays his drums too loud, how can he learn to play them softly? If Zou wants a car, but has only a cardboard box, how can he transform it? If Zou lost his friend's favorite airplane, how does he explain? How can Zou be successful at baking a cake if he has never done it before? How can Zou muster the courage to go to the doctor when he's afraid of injections? These are big issues in the mind and life of a preschool child and Zou demonstrates how to have fun, ask for help, listen to advice, and try different solutions until he can commit to the strategy that works. The show says it, shows it, and does it, in the embedded and naturally occurring lesson within each episode.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the book series by Lara Jones and uses embedded lessons on imagination and storytelling to encourage creating thinking for preschool children. In each story the narrator, Lara reads a story about Poppy Cat, to her own cat named Poppy. She makes up a story that will be exciting and just follows her imagination to distant lands reached by boat, plane or train. Poppy Cat is the leader of his group of animal friends, and the story always features an underlying message about being nice to yet ignoring the antics of the resident bully, a badger named Egbert. The lesson is always to think creatively and exercise your mind through reading because it will always lead to enjoyment and adventure.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Astroblast!" follows the adventures of a crew of space animals who run the Astroblast Space Station - the coolest hangout in the galaxy. The team of animals who run it are the best of friends - Comet, Halley, Sputnik, Radar and Jet - all under the watchful eye of Sal the Octopus. But when you stick five friends with very different personalities in one place - things are bound to get messy. Through it all, the "Astroblast!" crew accept their differences, help one another, make new friends, and discover that getting along is always out of this world. Every day brings a new adventure - big and small - whether it involves getting ready for a surprise birthday party for a Gremulon princess, dealing with demanding dairy-obsessed customers from the Milky Way, making peace between two spaceships of hungry space pirates, or helping a scary-looking, but shy, visitor make friends when no one will sit with him at lunch.
