Sorry, I don't really follow. So some questions inline:

Even if there aren't major changes to the proposals perhaps the needs of
OSM have shifted since 2011. So not sure I follow on why a previous
rejection dictates a current one.

Which tag isn't flexible enough (not sure what "It" refers to in your
sentence). It seems like it takes into account the kindergarden scope as
well as other childcare spaces, such as nursery, orphanage. It allows for
more specificity than the existing kindergarden tab as well as cultural
differences. Is it typical for amenity tags to be used with other
amenities? Is there something in this proposal that stops such
combinations? I've reviewed amenity=library and amenity=restaurant and
don't see the difference in approach. But again, I'm new to this so it
might be more subtle than I realize.

Again, what is "It" referring to here?  And can you give some suggestions
on how to make the proposal better?
