Children under five attend the San Fernando Anglican Nursery School, while those over five attend St. Paul’s Anglican Boys’ School or the San Fernando Girls’ Anglican School. One child now attends the San Fernando East Secondary School, Pleasantville.
Volunteers comprising of retired teachers, Fifth and Sixth Formers of neighbouring schools and students of tertiary institutions, who do their practicum at the Home, all assist with Home Lessons. A well equipped library is available.
Dr. Sylvia Loney Ed. D., P.D., N.C.S.P. provides voluntary psychological assistance to the Home. It is hoped that Government Social Workers may be attached to the Home sooon. This assistance is sorely needed in all Children's Homes.
Children attend the Roy Joseph Health Clinic which is in near proximity to the Home. Any serious cases are attended to at the San Fernando General Hospital, while those needing counseling attend the Pleasantville Child Guidance Clinic.
A Doctor of Psychiatry visits the Home on a weekly basis to give voluntary assistance to the children.
The Home is in need of a Medical Doctor to visit the children on a regular basis, who can be called upon in an emergency.
