No issue at all, might be what the little girl wants or maybe wanting to keep numbers down etc.... Could be a number of things.
You shouldn't have to do or not do anything.

I don't understand why anyone would have a problem with unless they are the birthday child and desperately wanted a boy/girl and the host did allow it.

What do you think? Gender based birthday party
It wouldn't bother me, my DS has been in daycare for 2 years and only ever invited to 1 birthday party. I don't know all the mums and DS hasn't come home saying he's made friends with any of the girls, he tends to stick with the boys, so it's not big deal to us.
I personally wouldn't invited ALL the daycare kids to DS's bday, I didn't even do that when he was in family daycare when there were only 4 kids.
I also wouldn't invite kids he wasn't friends with. So if he wasn't friends with girls, they wouldn't get invited.
Edit: for the record, as a child, I had mixed parties during kindy, and in primary school I had mainly girls as that is who i formed friendships with. My DS has had all mixed bdays so far (he turns 4 at the end of this month) but generally there are more boys than girls and the kids who are invited are mainly OUR friends' kids, not necessarily kids from daycare.
Also if my child was the only one not invited to a bday, then I would feel upset for him, and I wouldn't deliberately exclude just 1/2 children.

I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with it. But I'm yet to come across children of that age who only have friends of the same sex. So that leads me to believe it was a parent decision in order to go with a theme or to limit numbers, or both.
But, in the end, they're 3 year olds, they don't really grasp the concept of exclusion. So I would do anything about it.

The only time I have heard of this at any young age, is when a friend had a Princess Pamper party and invited all girls, no boys, but apart from that, most of the parties my kids have been invited to has been both sexes.
I wouldn't bat an eyelid to be honest, it's not my party, so I can't control who is invited, who isn't. The only time I would give it a thought, is if the 'whole' daycare class were invited and my child wasn't, then I would have a think about how I feel about it.

I wouldn't have a problem with it, particularly if it was a gender specific type party like a make over party or something

I think it's odd but maybe it's the parents way of keeping numbers and cost down.

that was pretty much the norm at our school.
DD is a very girly girl. I think it wasnt until last year (8) that she even acknowledged that there were boys in her class !!!
she has always had girl only birthday parties. and is having her 9th birthday party the weekend after next, and its still all girls.

Not odd to me either. It's probably a themed party.
