I think it begins at a very young age when we first develop a sense of "home". When you are a child, home is usually a place of comfort. The longer a child is away from home, the more (s)he looks forward to going back, whether it be from a trip or just a long day at school. I think most adults have exteremely vivid memories of the first place they can remember living.

Also, children are much more sensitive and impressionable than adults and probably are much more affected by place on an emotional level. When I was in nursery school, my mother took me along to visit a friend of hers at her apartment. I was so impressed by the place, most notably her cat and two goldfish, that I talked about it for years, even though it had only been a brief onetime visit.
