  • About Us

    Founded in Philadelphia in 2016, Watotolly is an innovative consumer technology company.

    Our platform enables families to connect and share babysitting resources within trusted personal and professional networks. Our mission is to leverage technology and the sharing economy to reduce the cost and complexity of childcare for hard-working parents everywhere.

  • What's In A Name?

    Watoto means children in Kiswahili, one of the dominant languages in East Africa, where Divinity - our Founder and CEO - lived and worked for four years as the director of a youth development non-profit she co-founded in 2008.


    During her time in East Africa, Divinity witnessed how a communal approach to childcare forges strong bonds within communities. Watotolly is creating the modern village drawing on the spirit of the “it takes a village to raise a child” philosophy.
