Eg for Health or Education (see screenshot below), all the subcategories are displayed together, what makes the map difficult to read + you may want to see only some categories (eg not having kindergartens and colleges+universities in the same map). Or maybe I missed something in the UI.

I think it's reasonable to have a single category for education with all kinds of educational amenities (this includes universities and kindergartens of course). To narrow the scope categories would increase the amount of categories instead, which would again be confusing.

An alternative approach which I'm following is to enable additional filters - so you would select Education and then there's an option to narrow results, e.g. the type of objects (university, kindergarten, ...). Or - think of Gastronomy - either type and/or cuisine and/or dietary options.

Anyway - you could also create your own categories if you want to. You could also check the categories of the repository "mr._satterly/osm_wiki_cat", there are more specialized categories.

Additional filters seem the best option. By subcategories I did not mean to create separate blocks in the left menu but what you describe for filters.

mr._satterly/osm_wiki_cat as names are not very meaningful for someone looking for education or health features :)
