14 months is an especially clingy time...I couldn't stand it. If I can remember right - for my son, it was really bad starting around then to about 16 to 17 months. My son's been in daycare and he didn't really have a problem there - more at home than anything.
Could be separation anxiety or maybe she's not getting the attention that she needs at the daycare? All kids are different. Do you have any other options? Maybe a friend that you can pay that would like to stay home with their kids? That's what I did after a long stint with a daycare center.
I don't think your daycare provider should be putting her in her playpen when she's throwing these types of tantrums though...I would think it would just make it worse. A corner or a time out area would be better so she doesn't feel so trapped and even more alone. Be sure that she IS getting sufficient attention though from this person..you never know.
