In each episode, Willa faces a challenge at home, in school or in her neighborhood. With her animals and best friend Dooley as key elements of her team, Willa works on solutions to overcome her challenge. Together they find ways to maintain healthy friendships, experience success, develop competence, and become altruistic. With help from her animal friends, Willa figures out how to earn the things she wants by helping others. She learns to appreciate the friends that she has rather than trying to change to fit in with the "cool" group. She realizes that asking questions is better than jumping to conclusions. Whether at school, home or in the neighborhood, Willa finds a way to analyze her situation and learn from experience.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. PEARLIE is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 6-10 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, Pearlie approaches new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.

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 doubledecker 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.
