Celebrating 100 years!

McNeilly Center for Children was founded in 1916, and throughout our 100 year history we have provided affordable, high quality early care and education for thousands of children in need.  Today, McNeilly is one of the largest providers of care for low-income children in Middle Tennessee, serving almost 400 children in 3 East Nashville locations.  We offer infant/toddler, preschool and pre-k programs for children whose parents are working, in job training and/or in school, and further provide parenting education and social services for the families of enrolled children.  

We are so grateful for the 100 years of support from donors, volunteers, board members, staff, and friends, who have helped shape McNeilly into the exceptional organization it is today.    Together, we continue to give children in need a stronger start, and are truly making a difference in the lives of families in need right here in our community.   We look forward to celebrating this Centennial year with you and thank you for your steadfast commitment to the mission of McNeilly!
