The major milestones of the Wichtel Akademie



In February 2010, Patrick Smague founded Wichtel Akademie München GmbH. The Wichtel Akademie started out with three day-care centres and 23 employees.


The Wichtel Akademie begins to grow

In February 2011 our new crèche opened at Biederstein in Schwabing near the English Garden. This was followed by our crèche in Harlaching an der Isar in November.


Bilingual education at the Wichtel Akademie

In May 2012 the Wichtel Akademie expanded its educational provision by introducing its bilingual concept. During the same year, three more crèches were opened in Obersendling, Neuhausen and Trudering.


Additional kindergarten places

In September, the Wichtel Akademie extended its childcare provision at the locations in Trudering, Laim, Sendling-Westpark, and added two Spanish groups to the day-care centre in Fürstenried.


Wichtel and miniMUCs grow together

From 1 April 2015, Wichtel Akademie München GmbH took over the management of the four day-care centres operated by miniMUCs GmbH in Pasing, Hadern, Harlaching Mitte and Parkstadt Schwabing. The Wichtel family thus grew from 255 to 385 employees.


Expansion of the Wichtel Akademie’s bilingual provision

In July 2017, Wichtel Akademie acquired the crèche and kindergarten of GesKin GmbH.

In the autumn of 2017, the Wichtel Akademie opened a new location in the Nymphenburg district — which included a French group for the first time. The Wichtel Akademie currently operates 16 day-care centres throughout Munich.
