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 over 400 children from low-income families each year, with 95% entering Kindergarten “ready to read” and on track with their peers.


Every child deserves a chance to reach their full potential in life.

With your help, we can give them that chance.
