Nightingale is a non-profit preK-12 private school chartered by the Ohio Board of Education.
All classes are directed by American Montessori Society certified teachers
Forty-five years ago Nightingale embarked on a pioneering vision to meet the diverse needs of Springfield families. We are deeply committed to implementing the educational philosophy of Maria Montessori as a paradigm shift in traditional education and as a model for educational reform.
The school showcases a model learning environment that treasures the unique worth of every child and invites students to fully explore their creative and intellectual potential. We offer an educational method that nourishes self-motivation, inspires reverence for life, and teaches self-discipline required for responsible world citizenship. Success is measured by the child’s continuing enthusiasm for learning.
To remain true to our founding mission and offer Springfield families the benefit of NM’s innovative programs, we have transitioned to a more spacious facility in North Springfield. The versatile multi-pod architectural design of the prairie-style school building – its lofty ceilings and soaring wood buttresses, its floor-to-ceiling windows and sunny workspaces, and its sweeping views of a 10-acre woodland campus – provides the perfect habitat for Montessori learning.
The ideal time to enroll in a Montessori Education is between the ages of 3 to 6 years.
