You say: "A place for children to do homework, play and spend time
otherwise after school."
The "after school" part is inaccurate as day care centers are often a
place children go to during the day while their parents work.

Some other considerations:
- Type:
  - centers: larger in size, with multiple employees caring for a
larger number of children.
  - home-based: an individual watching children in their own home.
- Frequency of care offered: Full-time (ie children attend every day
on fixed schedule), part-time (ie less than full-time), before and
after school (as a service to working parents whom leave for work and
arrive home from work before and after the regular public school day)
- The existing opening_hours tag is useful information that someone
could specify for a daycare.
- Age ranges are important (ie some care for only school age children,
where others specialize in pre-school, infants, etc).
