John Fitzpatrick
After School Care Director


Our ministry goal for after-school care at Denver Baptist Church is to encourage working families by providing a safe, fun, productive, Gospel-centered environment. Lead by well-experienced, thoughtful adults, your children receive care as valued individuals, created in the image of God–and therefore, precious!

A time to unwind and some enjoyable snacks await your child shortly after they arrive. After being fed, we take the time to learn God’s Word and pray together. Homework is also a priority. Our students will enjoy more family time when their assignments get done before they go home. Supervised computer and tablet time (with parental controls) is available for students’ schoolwork and educational games.

We love to spend time outdoors, so the kids get plenty of exercise on our playground and field. On rainy days, the kids’ energy gets spent in the gym playing games. We believe that friendships, confidence, and good sportsmanship grow through organized sports. When problems occur, we apply biblical principles to settle conflicts.

Our director, John Fitzpatrick, and his wife, Mia, are starting their 10th year at Denver Baptist After-School Care. They bring many years of experience working with youth as home educators and in student/children’s ministry in the Denver area.

Full-time and part-time tuition are available! We currently receive kindergarten through 5th-grade students from Rock Springs, Pumpkin Center, St. James, and Pursuit Prep.

We are at capacity for the 2023/2024 school year.
