Asda is experimenting with a summer holiday creche scheme for staff at its Ashton store in Manchester. Kids R Us @ Asda can cater for up to 32 children at a time at a cost of £10 a day each ­ charged in half-day sessions of £5. An Asda spokesman said the self­financing Ofsted approved project was set up in conjunction with local childcare provider St Anne's Fun Club. He said: "That individual store in Ashton had a particular need for childcare for employees' children in the summer. We will evaluate the trial to decide if we should adopt similar schemes at other stores." {{NEWS }}
