Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Come spend a 'day in the life' with the monsters at Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside.After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.
