Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. In order to best develop the skills and values that will produce "socially conscious" and productive future adults, fostering social and emotional competencies in our children is crucial. Social and emotional skills -- such as confidence, courage, loyalty, teamwork and problem solving -- provide an important knowledge base upon which appropriate behaviors can be developed. Imaginary environments provide children with a safe mechanism to witness these "pro-social" behaviors. Cubix provides just such a framework. The series tackles life scenarios that commonly affect children today. The educational objectives of Cubix include the reinforcement of age-appropriate interpersonal skills, the development of self-confidence, courage and personal responsibility. Cubix exposes children to these lessons within an entertaining, non-threatening imaginary environment. The Botties and their robots tackle personal and community adversities in creative story lines. Within this framework, children can see age-appropriate problem-solving strategies and learn to model the appropriate behavior. Through the Botties' experiences, viewers learn to overcome self-esteem and social competency issues, demonstrating to children that self-confidence, courage and resilience are necessary tools for problem solving and establishing good interpersonal relationships. Moreover, the characters inspire and promote altruistic behaviors, such as community participation, support, resilience, tolerance and leadership skills.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. It is difficult to find ways to engage children and encourage them to develop healthy attitudes and social awareness. However, the creative imaginary situations depicted in Magical DoReMi provide children with safe environments to practice and rehearse "pro-social" behaviors. The non-threatening, relatable Witchlings gently address issues and situations that children encounter everywhere - school, playground and home. The Witchlings' experiences encourage the development of fundamental social-emotional learning abilities in young children. Utilizing the backdrop of shared fantasy adventures, Dorie, Reanne and Mirabelle, are empowered by their unique talents and personal courage to explore the challenges of emerging friendships and group cooperation. The girls all share a core set of positive values and ideals; tolerance, respect for others, friendship, loyalty and compassion. A significant educational purpose of Magical DoReMi is to inspire empathy and to support the social-emotional underpinnings of confidence, responsibility, tolerance and loyalty. A primary purpose of each episode is to integrate and teach these age-appropriate social and emotional skills. Common school situations are dealt with in individual story lines, from feeling unpopular and vulnerable to being lost or experiencing an embarrassing failure in front of others - with the show providing a variety of age-appropriate solutions. At the same time, the storylines reinforce the messages and provide opportunities for children to model appropriate behavior, which includes understanding and compassion for those who look and behave differently, or are less fortunate.
