Would you use a daycare who used a male teacher? Why why not?

Two of the daycares I've used had a male owner/director who was very involved in the classrooms. They weren't actually teachers but they would fill in or do presentations, etc. I actually found it very comforting and refreshing. You know there are times when those children need a male influence in their lives and maybe they don't have it at home.
I'm thinking of changing my current daycare because I don't like the wife. I adore the husband, I would invite him into my home (in a neighborly way, just in case that sounded shady).

One of the ECE workers in my daughter & son's preschool/ school aged program is male. He is amazing with all the children. My kids adore him.

When I was in preschool, there was a male teacher, and I was messing around at nap time, which was wrong, but I was like 3-4 , and he got mad and yelled at me, and then I ran of course because I was scared, and he chased me, grabbed me, and shook me and told me not to tell anyone that he yelled at me. I told my mom and he got fired.
I wouldn't mind a male teacher, I would just not trust him unless I knew what kind of person he was.

Nope, not for daycare. I know it's sexist. I don't care.

I have men in my life that I would trust with my children's very lives. I don't see why I wouldn't accept a male daycare teacher at a licensed center. Womencan be abusive or pedos. It's not just sexist...
