The Pestalozzianum Foundation is a joint effort between the Canton of Zurich, the Zurich University of Teacher Education and the previous Pestalozzianum Foundation. It was founded in its present form in 2003. Since 1875, the predecessor Foundation had operated the «Pestalozzianum Zürich», an institute for educational science, which was integrated into the Zurich University for Teacher Education in 2002.
The Pestalozzianum Foundation owns extensive collections of educational history, which are made accessible to researchers and the public as part of a project enabled by the Lottery Fund of the Canton of Zurich (duration 2016-2022).
