This tag is used for places where young children are looked after.
This tag can be controversial because there is an overlap in some cases with amenity=kindergarten, but on the other hand there clearly is demand for such a tag. There are two separate proposal for this same tag   and a related one .
In some places, people are using amenity=nursery or amenity=creche (which have the same meaning of amenity=childcare), but amenity=childcare have more traction, probably due to being included in the iD editor presets.
