Kindergartens and colleges

Is it OK to use this tag for kindergarten and college buildings, too? --Wuzzy (talk) 00:01, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

No, it seems that building=kindergarten and building=college are used instead. — Sam Wilson ( TalkContribs ) … 00:29, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Building name and School names

Schools have names and often times school buildings also have names. Currently I great an area for the school and tag it amenity=school and name=<name of school>. School buildings inside I then tag building=school (as suggested for classroom buildings) and then I stick the building name inside of name=<building name>. It is the last think I'm unsure of, it might be mistaken for the name of the a school instead. Maybe be should clarify whether this is the preferred way to do it?!

That sounds pretty good. I guess there might be some room for confusion if people are only looking at the buildings' names, but most schools I've mapped it really is quite apparent so I wouldn't say it's a huge problem.
