I'm sitting with a group of three-year-olds at the Green Door Nursery School in southwest Calgary. I've interrupted them while they are busy assembling Mr. Potato-Heads and sculpting play dough to ask, "Where do you love to go when it's nice out?" Little Anne-Marie, her blonde pony tails bobbing frantically, shout-whispers in my ear. "My favorite thing is to go to the park with Grandma. I like the slide but I like the swings best!" I try prompting the group with some formal names of Calgary attractions but it seems Anne-Marie speaks for the class - the big hit with three-year-olds is 'the park'.
