Our building also houses the Evergreen Chinese Academy and Ruston Christian Childcare & Preschool, enriching the lives of families in our community. Rev. Douglas Louie and Mrs. Belinda Louie established the Evergreen Chinese Academy in the ICCCT building in 2005 by to teach Chinese language, customs and culture in a nourishing environment. The Academy aims to develop and enhance students’ Chinese proficiency and prepare them to meet the challenges of an intensely competitive global society while promoting cross-cultural understanding, cultivating appreciation of Chinese heritage and culture through language classes as well as participation in local community events and activities. We strongly believe that a dynamic and relevant curriculum, delivered with innovative instructional strategies grounded in language acquisition research, will provide a strong framework for language learning to occur. Evergreen Chinese Academy is accredited by AdvanceEd.
We established Ruston Christian Childcare and Preschool in 2005 after a substantial remodeling. It was our strong desire to establish a Christian daycare that will build children’s character in a safe and loving environment. Since the very beginning, we have striven to build a quality daycare for the children and their parents. Ruston Christian Childcare and Preschool is licensed by the Washington State Department of Early Learning.
