Anyone else have a DC who uses the toilet elsewhere, but not at home? How long does this phase last? Can anything be done to gently encourage use of the toilet at home?

DS is a little over 3 years. They have mini toilets at DS dacare. Real toilets, just smaller. And he often pees there. But at home, no way, never! He specifically says no, he will only pee in the daycare potty, so we know this is the issue, and we do not press at all. Maybe once a week we ask, but he always no, not at home. We have bought a small seat thing you can put on the toilet seat, and a step bench to climb up. We have bought a small potty you just use as is, but it is really too small. We have demonstrated "see mommy use the potty", waving bye-bye to the pee-poop..... We tried running around in nothing last summer, but that was too early, and right now it is minus zero here so not realistic.
