So your maths is likely perfect!
I would think my child(ren) would be very lucky.
Most of my primary school teachers were male including my father.
DS had a male carer who was just brilliant with him. DS adored him & was heart broken when he left. It never crossed my mind to be concerned about it, just as I didn't think twice about the female carers being something to worry about.
I love having guys in the center I work in. This children love them and they bring a whole new dimension and energy to the place. I taught half of the guys how to change nappies and hold babies and it was great (and greatly amusing) watching them go from nervous to confident in the role. They will make great parents when they have kids. It is very rare that the parents bat an eyelid about having males near the littlies and whent hey do, they soon get used to it. Everyone has to undergo the same checks and training.
To answer the OP I would not have an issue with a male or female carer.
I am with the PP's that think "good for him being in this line of work"
