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

Yes, I would. The daycare my son goes to has a male teacher. He is fantastic! He has a different approach to the kids than the female teacher that he shares the group with. My son adores him. I wish there were more male teachers like him. I can't say enough good things about him.

Not a problem. Females abuse kids as much as males do.

I would have no problem with a male teacher. I've been a preschool educator for more than a decade and I've worked with quite a few male teachers/assistants/ etc. The male presence is always appreciated in an early learning setting not just by the other staff members but by the children and parents also because as one mom said to me before its nice to have some testosterone in the midst of all this estrogen!

The kids definitely appreciate it because "rough housing" is something they need at that age and male teachers are more likely to engage them in this vs female teachers.

Male teachers go through the same background checks, trainings etc as female teachers so as long as he can clear a criminal background check, a CPS registry check and is qualified I have no problems what so ever with a male teacher!

My son goes to a daycare on base. I loved, and preferred, for him to have a male provider. With his dad being gone 200 days out of the year, its nice to know that he has one constant, positive, male role model.

I wouldn't have an issue. Some men are great with children. Might be a good thing.

Why not? Because most women think men can't take care of children? Because most women think all men are pedophiles and sex offenders?
