Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Justin Time is an animated show specifically directed to the preschool audience and always conveys an embedded lesson; it is possible to understand and manage any problem you have by thinking about it creatively. Justin is a little boy who has two imaginary playmates, Olivia (who meets him on his travels) and Squidgy the sponge (who also lives in Justin's bedroom). When Justin has a problem or doesn't want to do something his mother has suggested he daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to places all around the world. On these adventures, he meets Olivia who guides him through an experience that demonstrates to Justin how he can solve his problem. The show provides many facts about the context the characters visit while on the adventure, but the central point is to teach a lesson about a social/emotional dilemma universally experienced by preschool children.

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 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.
