♦ Company Background
Tender Minds Learning Center was started, by Mrs. Catherine Olayao in a 35 square meter house and was first named as "Sunbeam Daycare" starting with only 12, and then to 27 students.

Employees write down the time of their arrival and affix their signatures as they login, and do the same as they logout and so as they have their overtime.
