    From teacher to business owner

    How it all began

    From teacher to business owner

    Hello, my name is Catherine and I am the creator and franchisor of Popcat’s Music Time Ltd. Since its inception in September 2014, Popcat’s has grown rapidly with classes being carried out right across the Wirral, Neston, Ellesmere Port, Chester, Northwich, Childwall and Hereford.

    I am a fully qualified and experienced primary school teacher and I have spent many years teaching from foundation through to year 6. I have continued to tutor primary school children both indivually and in groups since leaving teaching. I have always been passionate about children learning through music and having fun, and after carefully planning Popcat’s for three years I finally decided to take the plunge of a career change in 2014. The satisfaction of knowing that so many little ones enjoy coming to Popcat’s classes week after week tells me that I made the right career choice.

    Introducing Jess

    Meet our Franchise Support Manager

    Hi my name is Jess and I am the Franchise Support Manager for Popcat’s. This is a new role that has been created due to the popularity of the Franchise and the increased level of support needed to ensure the business continues to grow. We are determined that the franchisees will continue to receive the high level of help and guidance from Head Office, that has always been one part of the package that makes the business so successful.


    I left my job as a Deputy Head Teacher in a Special School back in December 2015 and actually joined another music franchise, where I worked with the elderly and nurseries.

    I do miss being able to support and lead people so this new role is perfect and I already have been made to feel so welcome by the Popcat’s family. I am working closely alongside Catherine the Franchisor to help make Popcat’s the nationally known household name that it is here on the Wirral.


    I have a nearly 19 year old son who is in his first year at Uni, so a little bit of empty nest syndrome, but the husband and my 2 little foreign rescue dogs keep me well occupied! I am a member of PopVox choir as well and also enjoy a bit of crafting in my spare time!

    We do not allow any eating during the actual class due to the risk of choking and allergies.

    We are very proud to be fully accredited members of the CAA. The CAA is a not for profit organisation that gives parents and carers peace of mind knowing their chosen children's activity has signed up to a comprehensive code of practice.

Terms & Conditions
At Popcat's we strive to keep all little ones safe and thats our top priority, as well as having fun of course! However in the class parents and carers are responsible for their own children and their behaviour. We ask that the children do not run around or move around the class eating due to health and safety. We also ask that no food containing peanuts are ever brought into a class due to allergies.

If your child does have an accident during a session then please inform the class leader who will assist you and also provide a first aid kit.

Photographs are permitted in class but permission must be sought from all adults attending the session before they can be taken. Photographs may only be taken for personal use and may not appear on social media. Full length videos are not permitted under any circumstances.
