Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Set in medieval times, Jane and the Dragon is an animated show based on Martin Baynton's best selling book about a middle class medieval girl named Jane. Jane is raised in the Royal Court as a Knight in Training after she demonstrates her courage by leaving the castle to conquer the local dragon.

In each episode, Jane encounters a challenge that tests her problem solving skills and requires her to demonstrate her strength of character as a Knight of the King's Guard. Sometimes Jane learns a moral lesson, and other times she uses her analytical ability to illustrate how a problem can be made less complicated and easily solved.
