Early Years Scotland’s prison based ‘Learning Through Play Together’ programme is the subject of a short film produced by the Community television channel.
The film-makers were granted access to HMP Low Moss near Glasgow and spoke to prisoners and Early Years Scotland and prison staff about the programme, where a qualified early years practitioner works directly with prisoners to encourage attachment and an understanding of their children’s development and the importance of play, and in family sessions designed to support the prisoner and his young child and family working together.
Early Years Scotland is currently working in partnership with the Scottish Prison Service in four prisons – HMP Low Moss, HMP Barlinnie, HMP Dumfries and HMP & YOI Grampian.
The Learning Together Through Play programme, which is funded by Big Lottery Scotland, won a prestigious Care Accolade Award in 2014.
