Centipede is a registered charity providing before school, after school and vacation care at Glebe Public School. Our services include breakfast, a hot meal in the afternoons, a food pantry and referrals to external services when required. The Centipede community reflects the diverse Glebe community and the educators at Centipede endeavour to provide a safe, fun, stimulating and welcoming environment for all children and families, regardless of their circumstances. 

Cost of living pressures have made it particularly difficult to facilitate some programs and excursions this year, especially in the school holidays when we aim to give the children stimulating experiences beyond Glebe. In order to provide a varied vacation care program over summer, this year we have partnered with the wonderful Sewing for Good, a sewing group in our local community who have created a range of Christmas stockings, sacks and bags to raise money for Centipede this Christmas.
