Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming
All episodes of Disney's Recess are designed to educate and inform children who are between the ages of two and eleven years old. More specifically, the programs teach children about the fundamentals, morals and educational lessons of life. This is a collection animated stories about six fourth-grade children who attend public school. These children are an ethnically and gender-diverse group. Their experiences at Third Street School deliver messages about problems common to middle childhood: conflicts with authority figures, school and family rules, issues of fairness, peer pressure and coping with disappointment. A number of episodes revolve around class bullies or "teacher's pets." Series episodes provide opportunities for parent/child discussions about values.
