quicko: creche

This is a British and Australian term for the lovely little place you keep lovely little children while their parents are at, say, church. It's pronounced "cray-sh" and is something I have, thus far, avoided ...

And, while we're at it, they've got rather a different definition of infants here. I've never been able to nail down a precise age bracket, but it's significantly older than where we'd apply the term. Like preschoolers or something, but the specifics are a bit hazy.
