She has started pinching and thinking about biting! Me, her sister and this morning a 6 year old at her in home daycare. She has not learned this behavior at the sitter's house, I do not want the kid that other kids do not want to play with!
She also snatches toys from much older kids and makes them cry.
Is this just her trying to express her wants? She only does this when she is frustrated.
What do I do to correct this behavior?

Toddlers aren't developmentally ready for group care. If you can't avoid group care then biting is a behavior you can expect. At home keep your eye on her and be ready to prevent the bites. Redirect her behavior. Do not yell, give mini-lectures, bite, hit, give time-outs, or other punishments. Remember this is a normal behavior. It's not your child's fault she is being put in day care.
Teaching her some signs may help her express herself. I have a 21 mo grandson and just knowing more and drink helped a lot at that age. He uses the drink sign for both drink and eat. Love & Limits by Elizabeth Crary is a great first toddler discipline book.
