Karen Sidell - Bop Tots Founder & Class Leader

Hi, I’m Karen,

I live in Hingham with my hubby Ian and my 2 girls – Leila & Isla, I am an experienced childcare practitioner having previously worked in nurseries and as a nanny before founding Bop Tots in 2017.

When Leila was 1 years old I felt there was little for us mums and toddlers to do in Hingham, so using my previous background knowledge working with children Bop Tots was born! 

I first started at Lincoln Hall in Hingham, offering music & movement classes then soon began running parties, family fun workshops & also early years sessions at local nurseries & playgroups.

 Bop Tots classes have been well received by local families & I am passionate about providing opportunities & a fun, warm and non-judgemental environment so the parents & carers get just as much enjoyment out of the class as their children. Classes benefit not only the children to help their development through the activities  but also their parents & carers with allowing them to connect and gain support from other local families. 

As an experienced childcare practitioner I have worked with children in nurseries & as a home carer for 10+ years, this means I understand the value of giving children the time & opportunity to express themselves & to also socialise with other children but also as a mummy I also understand how lovely it is to be a part of & see your child enjoy activities but also to meet other local families to share your experiences & support each other.

I am so pleased that Bop Tots has turned into a successful business & this has also been validated by winning an award for Best Children’s Class/Service for 18 month to 4 year old at The Norfolk Pregnancy, Baby & Child Award in December 2018.

My next steps for Bop Tots is to find a permanent home within Hingham, then expand by offering more classes in different locations & add other music & movement themed activities.
