operator:type seems to be established with 180k uses. Plausible to me.

What you are trying to tag is the umbrella organisation of the operator,
kind of the operator of the operator,
not the "organisation of the kindergarten".

Thus organisation=* seems a bad fit to me.

usage is very low (161) and unstructured regarding the values. Would not count on that.

Thus something like
operator:umbrella=* would be more suitable, or more self-explanatory but longer

(Langenscheidt: de: Dachverband = en: umbrella organization )
