Sometimes biting and other behaviors is done on purpose by a child who is experiencing some separation anxiety issues. I'm not saying this is the case for your child. But I have known many children who have had issues of being "kicked out" of a day care or preschool setting. What helped in many of those situations was brief family therapy focusing on separation issues. For the care providers they just know he bites, acts out, and is more than what they can safely manage at this time. For parents we also have to wonder WHY does our child bite. A young child won't know and can't articulate the reason. They just act. Ten to one at this age it is related to anxiety. But that is just a guess. Especially if there have been recent changes and stress.
