    Pestalozzi's career is almost a puzzle. The challenges increased as much as his debt. Pestalozzi married Anna Schulthess, daughter of an upper-middle-class Zurich family in Many then went on to set-up their own establishments and train others. Gertrude is a wife and mother from the village of Bonnal, who teaches her children how to live moral upstanding lives through the belief and love of God.

    Pestalozzi developed two related phases of instruction: the general and special methods. He joined and wrote for the Helvetic Society, a Catholic and Protestant student society dedicated to improving education and reforming the government.

    Disagreement had not yet developed into open conflict, but different views about policy were represented by Niederer and Schmid. Pestalozzi's family finally joined him in the institute to live and work. They are his earliest works which outline ideas that would later be known as Pestalozzian. They then failed to understand the philosophy about encouraging each child in the garden. Perhaps it was simply because he appreciated life. He first attended a local primary school and then took the preparatory course in Latin and Greek at the Schola Abbatissana and the Schola Carolina.
