I would keep him at home. Puppy daycare isn't all that it's cracked up to be. I think dogs pick up more bad behaviors there than anything else. Your puppy needs more down time than he is likely getting at daycare. He will grow up to be the kind of dog that is a busy body, wont settle, if all he is used to is endless play time with other puppies. This is a time in his life that he should not want anything more than to be with you. I would eliminate all daycare at this point. Maybe a few play sessions on weekends with dogs that you trust. I bet he is so tired and frustrated, he is taking it out on you. He should be fine being kept in a crate all day while you are at work. If you must, you can pay someone to come in and feed him till he is a little older.
Whenever he bites, say "no" sternly, but not yelling, and offer a toy. He takes it, do a little tug and praise. He will learn it is more fun to play with toys than your hands or feet.
By the way, your dog is in no way "different" or a problem child. GSD are notorious for this biting behavior. I think it is exacerbated due to him being overly tired/stimulated all day.
