In Missouri licensed providers may not have birds or reptiles in area where the children can come into contact with the pets. Salmanella is a big problem with both and you MUST wash well after handleing either one.

As a parent you need to be proactive for the safety of your child. I would suggest moving your child since it bothers you. But if it is not in the regulations she is not breaking any laws.
I agree, if you're having doubts about your child's health and safety, maybe it's time you considered moving them to a new daycare. I don't think it's bad for a child to have positive interactions with birds every now and then, but everyday, especially where they play, is too much exposure.
