[Tagging] Feature Proposal - Voting - childcare

I  notice the suggested rendering is similar to schools.  Don't know about
other areas, but in the US, many childcare centers are run out of private
homes, so that rendering might seem a little strange.  Maybe in that case a
node is a better choice.

Also, if you really want to get into the details of capacity and age, in the
US there are sometimes limits on # of children in an age range, depending on
the ratio of staff to children. Again, don't know how this might differ
elsewhere.
