these are not access tags, they convey a connection of a feature to a specific religion, similar as a place of worship. I would expect them to accept other children as well, but often the parents would not want to send their offspring to a place with a strong influence of a foreign religion. There are also edge cases, e.g. a kindergarten operated by scientology in Germany: scientology is not a charity in Germany and I am not sure whether they are recognized as a religion, but I think they are not, while in other countries they might be
