CHICAGO, IL,  January 3, 2013—Northbrook, IL-based First Class Care ( ), Inc. recently announced that the firm is now offering adult, children, and infant CPR for nannies, other childcare providers and families.

“Adding the CPR class to our continuing education program is just one more way to help our nannies and their families stay as safe as possible,” said Erin Krex, president of First Class Care, which is a member of the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies ( “Offering a CPR class closely aligns with our commitment to provide our nannies and clients with opportunities to increase their knowledge and comfort level when it comes to caring for children.”

The next class, opened to the public, scheduled for January 12, 2013 will be taught by Steve Krex who is an Emergency Response Instructor and certified to teach CPR and First Aid. “I enjoy teaching CPR, because it gives me an opportunity to really make a difference in someone’s readiness in case of an emergency,” he said. “We never like to anticipate something like needing to perform CPR, but it’s always good—especially where children are involved—to be prepared.”
