ONCE UPON A TIME...
Started by Alan Wyllie and
Lindsay Wyllie in their home town of Barrhaven, A Gym Tale offers
guests a fantastic program and play environment designed to help
children from birth to eight develop physically, cognitively, and
socially. Their desire to nurture success in children at an early age
and to make imagination paramount in the process is how it began...
seeing the smiles on young faces every day make them look forward to a
happily every after.
Our play, music, and preschool
programs were designed by Lindsay Wyllie, a graduate of the
University of Guelph with a Ba.Sc. in Child and Youth Studies and in
collaboration with professionals from fields of children's
development, children's dance and movement, physical education, play
therapy, and music studies.
Lindsay is a qualified Early Childhood Educator with published research
relating to children's developmental psychology as well as experience
with preschool and special needs populations. A Gym Tale's structured
and age-appropriate programs ensure that the confidence and self-esteem
of our guests grows each week as they experience exciting and
imaginative play, incorporating obstacle courses, cooperative games,
music, creative movement, and sports skills.
OUR PLAY ENVIRONMENT
A Gym Tale boasts the most
exciting, the safest, and the highest quality equipment in children's
play programming. Surrounded by visually stunning fairytale murals from
floor to ceiling and padded flooring that blankets the play space, this
equipment includes soft foam climbers, ball pits, swings and trapezes,
ropes, tunnels, gymnastic equipment, and trampolines. There is no other
play environment that compares to the experience you will find at A Gym
Tale. We take every precaution to ensure that our gym is the most
stimulating, the safest and the cleanest play centre for young children
in the city.
