Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. LAZY TOWN encourages fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. In the imaginary setting of Lazy Town, characters' eating and fitness habits are linked to problem solving in their world. The lead character is Stephanie, a young girl who guides the audience through the story as she and her friends ("human" puppets) and her Uncle (Mayor Milford Meanswell) navigate life within Lazy Town. Robbie Rotten, the underground spy and influencer who personifies the ethos of Lazy Town, is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids have difficulty with Robbie Rotten, Sportacus, a gymnast/athlete prepared to answer any call for help, comes to the rescue from his home in a zeppelin-like aircraft that hovers over earth. The underlying themes of Lazy Town stress the importance of eating "sports candy" (fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.

But because he doesn't know everything, he also has a lot to learn. In each episode, Noddy actively finds a way to manage a project, soothe hurt feelings, settle arguments, or learn how to do something new by following directions. The examples in each episode are age-appropriate challenges for children in the target audience and model clear and concrete solutions to problems. Main digital channel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. JUSTIN TIME features a 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, providing him with an experience to help solve his problem when he returns home. Justin is accompanied by two imaginary friends throughout his adventures: Olive, a knowledgeable playmate, and Squidgy, the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Some examples of Justin's lessons involve learning that it takes focus to achieve success, that our failures can teach us what we need to do to succeed next time, and that when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find an alternative way to achieve your goal. Justin promotes self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination. Main digital channel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. CHICA is a five-year-old "baby" chick who spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shop's one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica's nanny, and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy-eared rabbit, and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. In each episode, Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgment, and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure--a fantasy transformation to animation--where Bunji and Stiches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem-solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio-emotional development, and Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills. Main digital channel.

The shop's one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica's nanny, and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy-eared rabbit, and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. In each episode, Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgment, and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure--a fantasy transformation to animation--where Bunji and Stiches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem-solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio-emotional development, and Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills. Main digital channel.
