It Takes a Village Police and Firefighters, the Library and businesses Help Preschoolers build a miniature model of livingston.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood when preschoolers work together to create the town they live in --with special help from police and firefighters, shop owners and librarians. It's an especially nice day when the mayor and other elected officials from the township and school cut the ribbon on the large-scale model. With help from these special guests, preschoolers at Burnet Hill Elementary on Wednesday, January 25 created their own home sweet homes, while Livingston's leaders helped them learn all about our town by bringing in their own models of the firehouse, police station, library, and pool. Businesses shared replicas of the local hotel, donut and camera shops, gas station, newspaper building, and even the pub. Welcome to Livingston, created by our littlest learners with big ideas on how to create a tiny town.
