I am getting more and more the impression that whole amenity=social_facility tagging system was not a good idea. It would be so much simpler and clearer at the same time if we used duck tagging. amenity=nursing_home / orphanage / soup_kitchen / daycare / food_bank etc.
When needed you could still add the target group tag, but sometimes it is already implied.
