All of Collège de l'Île's programs are in fields where Island employers are looking for qualified employees and they are one of the best possible investments toward improving long-term quality of life. The Collège is also an excellent postsecondary option because of its excellent instructor-student ratio. It focuses its efforts on coaching its students to success.

Cristina Morales is a part-time student in the Early Childhood Educator program at the Collège.

"My experience as a part-time student at Collège de l'Île has been very positive up to now. The Collège's staff are very flexible and understanding with students who have very busy lives."

Adina Nault is also a part-time student in the Early Childhood Educator program. This mother of three young children, who is also working full-time, decided to go back to school to meet the children's needs better. "I've been working in an early childhood centre since 2008 and I love my work. In order to learn new things that will make me better at my job, I decided to start studying part-time at Collège de l'Île"
