Bot is even entry level like EOS 1100D better than compact??
Or maybe some other better entry SLR also entry model?

For your stated needs of capturing people while they're playing, running, etc., I think a budget DSLR is a far better choice than a compact. Among budget models, the 1100D is probably the best; it's AF system in particular seems to garner praise from reviewers when compared to other budget DSLR's (this is when using the optical viewfinder; live-view auto-focus slows down considerably, but then, it's the optical viewfinder that makes capturing action shots so much easier). This review is an interesting read if you haven't seen it yet:
