Yes, he will definitely still grow after neutering. In fact, dogs neutered before puberty may end up being slightly taller than those not neutered or neutered later because the long bones continue to grow a little longer (although the difference is slight).

Neutering will not make him more submissive though it may make him more easy going with other dogs. My guess is that this is why the daycare requires it. Right now he's a puppy so it's normal and socially appropriate for him to be submissive. As he matures (which he'll still do, neutered or not) he will find his place in the pecking order.

At 9 months old and 86lbs, your boy is huge!
And a very handsome young man if that's him in your avatar.
