What is called a "crèche" in French is your nursery. Btw, we already
find ~400 amenity=nursery in taginfo. And what is the difference
between "nursery" and "kindergarten" ? age ?


nb : we should really avoid special chars in standised tags. Think
that not every keyboard provides an easy access to "è" like yours and
not everyone is working exclusively with presets. It would be the same
concern with Cyrillic or Chinese characters...
