Grandson being bitten at daycare

I am in a hurry to get this written. My youngest grandchild goes to a large daycare called Amazing Explorers. There are 320 children there, many come after school.

Daycare prides itself on STEM activities and enrichment. Grandson is 20-months-old. Parents have been told twice now that he is 'behind' their developmental targets. Both times it was trivial stuff. I have watched the child grow up, and he is not behind his peers.

Now he is being bitten over and over. One day he was bitten 4 times! Parents are being told, "If he expressed himself better, this wouldn't happen. He needs to talk in 2-word phrases." Not one child in his toddler room uses 2-word phrases. I have been in there.

Now, parents are considering having him tested, because daycare has convinced them that the biting is all DGS fault. And that he probably has a speech delay. Meanwhile, the biting continues.

Oh yes, and very high staff turnover rate. New teacher in his room since Monday.
