Ugh. Just adding my voice to those advocating for a change. I know it might be a difficult age to change day cares, but the situation your daughter is in just doesn’t sound right at all. 

A normal, healthy 10 month old should be getting into all kinds of (safe) things, and they just need to be watched very carefully, and constantly re-directed. That’s just normal for that age. I don’t at all know what they mean by your daughter being a “mess”. I see red flags all over this!

You are not overreacting I would switch daycares and I would also report them to licensing.

I would look for a new daycare.  I know you said the Assistant Director overheard at one point, have you talked with the Director?  Even if you do leave, I would still report that teacher and have a discussion with the director.  That is all normal behavior.  My second just turned 1 and while they have no cables out (that is a big hazard, and should be reported) he loved to try to steal other baby’s food and socks.  They really only told me once I think, just as something funny he was doing and not complaining about him.  If you get a bad feeling about a teacher/daycare you should definitely follow your instincts.
