For any generic kindergarten buildings. Buildings for specific uses (sports halls etc) should be tagged for their purpose.

Use amenity=kindergarten for the perimeter of the kindergarten grounds.

How to map

There is just one school building

Map the outline of the area area of the building and add the tags amenity=kindergarten and building=kindergarten. Of course you can add name=* and address as well.

There are more buildings

Map the whole area area of school grounds including all the buildings and add tags amenity=kindergarten and name=*.
Add the tags building=kindergarten to every school building.
