Reanne Buckland is a part-time student in the Collège's Early Childhood Educator program. She is working full-time in her field of study at l'Île Enchantée, a daycare in Charlottetown. "I already had a good job, but I wanted to continue my post-secondary education while keeping my job at the daycare. That made studying part-time a perfect choice for me. Besides being very happy with my experience at Collège de l'Île, I like being able to study in French on the Island."
