Meredith Drive Preschool has been a life-shaping ministry of The Bridge (formerly Meredith Drive Reformed Church) since 1971! We offer an outstanding faith-based preschool program for 2-5 year-olds at The Bridge in Johnston. We have been highly accredited by the Iowa Preschool Quality Rating System since 2012.

Our preschool has an excellent staff who all have early childhood experience and love working with young children. They teach using a developmentally appropriate preschool curriculum that is designed to nurture each child's social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth with a positive introduction to the school environment.

Start children off on the way they should go and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

What do parents say?

  • "I think what drew me to Meredith Drive Preschool was two things: the focus on the whole child and the warm and nurturing staff. The school is large enough to provide wonderful materials and activities for the children, but small enough to feel personal and homey. We have visited a number of preschools, and this one certainly stands out as a leader." ~ Susan Wees
  • It is clear that the staff take an interest in our child and our family. They engage in age-appropriate ways to ensure it is a safe, creative, and fun learning environment. Our son and daughter have grown both in social skills and basic reading, writing, and math. Thankful for every day they are at Meredith Drive. Thankful for all you do! ~ Emily Judd"
  • What sets this preschool apart is their caring and experienced teachers and director who not only nurture children but also know how to provide hands-on, developmentally appropriate preschool activities that are full of learning and wonder and play! I have high expectations and decided long ago that if I couldn't enroll my children in the 'best' preschool, I would keep them home with me. I'm so thankful for this program." ~ Dawn Schumacher
