For the German situation, KiTa and Hort should/could well be tagged with
childcare, but "Krippe"? And if we decide to tag a Krippe (creche/nursery)
the same as a Hort or KiTa, but with age tags, isn't that inconsistent with
Kindergarten? From my point of view, Hort and KiTa are both childcare
places which extend beyond the times of kindergarten and school (and are
after those, typically), while a Krippe is for babies up to 3 years and is
more like a Kindergarten, apart from the age. It would really be much more
logical and easier to introduce / accept nurseries (there's a reason there
is a specific term for this in language, no?), then throw most but not all
of "child-related-stuff" in the same cauldron where you will have to dig
for age group and other specfic tags in order to make sense of it.
