Hello, I am Teliscia Martin-Robinson; most people call me Ms. Tee. Welcome to The Learning Box. This is my daughter Mia and my son AJ. Mia is the reason I started The Learning Box. Eighteen years ago, when I was pregnant with Mia, I had a chance conversation with a maternity nurse with whom I worked. This woman talked to me about how wonderful it was for her to stay home with her children and then return to work after raising them. So that day, I decided to have Mia and then open my home to other children in the Bixby Knolls area who needed child care. Thus, I created Tee’s Learning Center, INC that I opened in 2003. Then, four years later, I had my son AJ, which brought me so much joy and solidified that I was on the right path.
The Learning Box Child Enrichment Center came about in 2019. My business had grown, and I wanted a bigger space for my little friends to learn, play, create, and have fun. That is why I moved the center to Compton. Back to my roots. I am a graduate of Compton High, where I was in The Leadership Program and a cheerleader. I love being part of this community, and being here has created a new level of happiness in my life.
Give us a call. I would love to talk to you about your child care needs!
About The Learning Box CEC Staff
We have a passion for helping our future generations achieve the proper milestones of child development. We have a highly trained and qualified team to assist your child by doing:
- Supervise and monitor the safety of children
- Prepare and organize mealtimes and snacks for children
- Help children keep good hygiene
- Change diapers of the infants and toddlers
- Organize activities and implement curriculum that allows your child to learn about their world and explore new interests
- Develop schedules and routines to ensure that your child has enough physical activity, rest, and playtime
- Watch for signs of emotional and/or developmental problems in your child and bring them to your attention
- Keep records of your child’s progress, routines, and interests
Our childcare staff love to read and play with infants and toddlers to introduce fundamental concepts, such as manners, how to share, and take turns by playing games with other children.
Our team helps preschool-age children prepare for kindergarten. Young children learn from playing, solving problems, questioning, and experimenting. We use play and other instructional techniques to support children’s development. For example, storytelling and rhyming games are used to teach language and vocabulary. We may help improve your child’s social skills by having them work with another on a project. We teach pre-math skills by having children count when building with blocks. We also involve the children in creative activities, such as art, dance, and music.
Our team watches school-age children before and after school. In addition, we often help these children with homework and take The Learning Box Children on many field trips.
When your child is out of school during the summer, we watch your older child and younger ones for the entire day while you are at work. In addition, we enjoy doing summer activities and taking field trips to keep children active to help their growing bodies and minds develop.

Our Educators Help to Establish Routines
Routines are an essential part of building a safe environment. While routines provide vital functions, such as teaching kids about responsibility and self-discipline, they also help establish rules and guidelines. When guidelines are routinely enforced, kids find them easier to follow, and accidents are less likely to happen. For example, always using a step stool to reach objects on a shelf, wash hands thoroughly after using the washroom, help avoid arguments by waiting for their turn to play with toys, and ensure all materials are put back in their place.
