Mrs Modupe Audifferen, the Founder and Proprietress of Tendercare Schools has been a teacher of distinction all through her life. For instance between 1968 and 1970, she taught at Mary Convent School in Lagos. In 1970, she left for the United Kingdom where she enrolled for the famous Montessori Teachers Certificate which she passed in flying colours. She later taught in Stapleston School in Swiss Cottage and Carrol School in Hammerfield, London.

After the course, she returned to Nigeria where she was appointed to head Corona Nursery School. She later resigned to join her husband in Kaduna who had earlier been invited by the Kaduna Polytechnic to establish the Cartographic Section in the College of Environmental Studies in 1973.

By October 1973, she was employed as a teacher with Women's Teacher College, Kaduna. She headed the Arts department, and also took up the teaching of Methods in English and History, including Arts. She is a past International Women Society, the Royal Commonwealth Society, London and of the Red Cross Society. She has represented Kaduna State Ministry of Education at several meetings and conferences. She has represented Kaduna State Ministry of Education at several meetings and conferences. She took part in the drafting of the U.P,E, SYLLABUS IN Arts in Kaduna State.

Although Mrs Audifferen is an accomplished educationist, her involvement in N/P Educational Development is not totally as a result of academic attainment. All through her life, it appears she has an aura that attracts children to her. Several years ago while in Lagos, the children in her neighbourhood took delight in gathering every evening in her house. It was therefore usual that parents looking for their children were politely directed to enquire first at her residence.

Her real involvement in Nursery/ Pimary Education started when two teachers suddenly left St. Mary's Convent Nursery School, Ikoyi, Lagos and she was invited to assist. They discovered that she could teach properly. The authorities of the school later decided to give her a chance. At the end of the year, her class performed better.

It was at this stage that a Reverend Sister sent for the Montessori admission form, which she later completed and left for London. That is how she got into children's education. Later, she left for America where she bagged a Diploma in Fine Arts, having resigned earlier from WTC Kaduna. She was invited to help establish St. Saviours School, Kaduna. She started the school modestly. She nurtured the school up to primary one before leaving.

Having gained a lot of experience in primary school management, she then set up her own school under her direct supervision and control. The idea gave birth to Tender Care Day Nursery School in November 1982 with 9 pupils. The school has progressed from Nursery to Primary level and has now grown bigger to Trinity College International, Kaduna. All glory and honour to God. Congratulations.
