If it is a small facility on the grounds of a church, just tag the building.

If it is a stand-alone facility, then tag it as a school. 

You wouldn't cut out a space in a shopping center and declare it landuse religious just because the spot is rented by a church. 

And you wouldn't cut the parking lot off the mall when mapping the malls landuse - why would you cut off the church's??

Are we talking about the same OSM? I'm really confused.
