Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Noodle and Doodle is an instructional series that features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. The show is hosted by Sean, who drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies, and a kitchen, all ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something for display in the child's home. Sean is accompanied by Doggity, an every-faithful Beagle dog, who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe and kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. While the show will be enjoyed by preschoolers, the projects are very practical and engaging to implement for children ages 5-8. The art projects typically feature lessons on recycling materials for re-use in making art and always demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something useful to achieve a completely different goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Justin Time features and little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, but also provides him with an experience that helps him solve his problem when he returns home. While on the adventure he is accompanied by Olive, a knowledgeable imaginary playmate, and Squidgy the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Justin's lessons involve learning, for example, that it takes focus to achieve success, failure can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find another way to get to your goal. Justin is all about self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

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. The Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off to sleep. The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town promotes fitness and healthful habits for children of preschool and primary grades. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of Lazy Town is to eat "sports candy" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

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 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.
