Having been on both sides of this, I can say that pediatricians sometimes seem to be thinking that the if the illness isn't likely to start a pandemic, they don't feel that they have to recommend that a child be excluded. But that's different from a business owner making the call to exclude.

As others have said, young, sick kids can be pretty needy even if they aren't a public health risk, and also illnesses go around a daycare very fast, which causes other families to be affected too.
YES THIS, also....doctors know zilch about daycare regulations. Sometimes our regulations for what we can allow in care don't jive with the doctor's opinion.
