In Brazil, kids up to 5 years old can stay at either a private facility
("creche") or a state-run facility ("escola infantil"). These are currently
being mapped as kindergartens here.

Preschool is a preparatory 1-year course offered by regular schools, so
these are not mapped as kindergartens here.

Linguistic note: kindergarten literally translates to "jardim de infância"
which is the former name of preschools in Brazil.
