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 [1] [2] and a related one [3].

The tag amenity=kindergarten is used differently in different countries. In some, it is only used for preschool-like education (isced:level=0). Other countries include institutional supervision of primary-school children in the afternoon. In other places, such as the United States, it is a generic term for supervision of children in a wide range of age groups and institutions, from schools to private service providers. It is suggested a feature be tagged as a kindergarten when there is an overlap.

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.
