The first five years are crucial to a child’s development.

We provide quality care for low-income families at this key window in their child’s life.


Nearly 400,000 children in Tennessee live in poverty.

The McNeilly Center serves almost 300 children from low-income families each year, with 95% entering Kindergarten “ready to read” and on track with their peers.


Your support gives children in need a stronger start in school and in life.

Your gift helps children in need in our community.
