BROOKLYN -

Businesses throughout the borough welcomed new employees Thursday for "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day."

Dozens of employees' children ranging from 6 to 16-years-old spent the day at NYC Health and Hospitals Kings County. Officials told News 12 that the children spoke with nurses and doctors about their careers. They also toured different areas of the hospital and rode in an ambulance.

"Being at work with my parents and all my friends…feels like I'm a grown-up,” said third-grader Calla McGarvey.

The FDNY and NYPD also participated in the fun. Children learned about a typical day for firefighters and policemen.
