I had a bird for 9 years. (Not while doing daycare). Birds are very fragile, and become sickly easily. I would be more worried that the bird would get sick from the daycare kids bringing in sickness than the bird giving sickness to the kids. Also, with my bird, I never left the cage door closed. She would sit on top of her cage, occasionally on the curtains, and we held her a lot. Even though she was "free" much of the time, she did not poop all over.

Yes, people can be allergic to birds just like they are allergic to dogs, cats, and other pets/animals.
