Const. Brian Montague says a silver Honda Civic sedan stopped just after 1 p.m. outside L'Ecole Anne Hebert Elementary School (on Killarney Street near East 56th Avenue).
He says the car was driven by a man with a woman in the passenger seat, who opened the door and asked a six-year-old girl if she wanted to get inside.
The little girl, who was standing with a group of friends at the playground, refused and ran to tell an adult at the school.
Montague says neither the man or the woman got out of the car and it's unknown why they approached the children.
Police are attempting to locate the car and identify the two inside and ask anyone with information to come forward.
