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.
As of April 1st, 2015 Katrina and Geraldene have taken over as new owners. Their goal is to continue the high quality programming that everyone has come to know about A Gym Tale. There are plenty of exciting ideas that will be put into place over the next few months!
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.
A Gym Tale boasts the most exciting, the safest, and the highest quality equipment in children’s play programming. Surrounded by visually stunning fairy-tale 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.
