Deborah A. Booker of Weare has been named director of the new Child Development Center at Manchester Community College (MCC). The Center functions as the lab school for the college's Early Childhood Education (ECE) program, and offers morning and afternoon preschool programs as well as full-time, part-time and drop-in child care services.

Booker is a graduate of MCC's Early Childhood Education program, and then continued her education to earn her bachelor’s degree in child development from Southern New Hampshire University, and her master’s in education from Walden University.

An experienced child development educator, Booker has almost 15 years of experience as a lead teacher and/or center director at two Children's World Learning Centers in Manchester and in Merrimack. Currently an adjunct ECE instructor at MCC, she is also an active member of the Early Childhood Education accrediting agency, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and has served as an Accreditation Advisor to guide child development centers in New Hampshire and Massachusetts through the accreditation/reaccreditation process.

Booker is a licensed foster parent, and, in 2009, earned her State of NH Teacher/Mentor credentials. She lives in Weare with her husband and three children.
