 now my daughter feels like she was left out.

Has that ever happened to your daughter? How did you handle it?

 I would just talk to her about having more than one friend to do things with....it doesn't mean she was left out.

That hasn't happened but her good friend told her she didn't like her. She is only 3 so she didn't really understand. 

I would explain to your daughter that it is good for every person to have many friends. And to do things with many different people. It doesn't mean that her friend thinks anything less of her, just that she can have fun with other people too.

My daughters' BFF's and friends all have other friends.  They don't worry about what their friends do.

Quoting Rushn311:

I tell the same thing to my daughter....best friends will have "other" friends.

I remember that happening to me. Basically, you just have to talk to her and try and explain to her that we can all have more than one friend and just because she went to the movies with another girl it doesn't mean that they are not friends anymore.

It happens all the time, because at 6, she still doesn't understand the cocept of having more than one friend. I just remind her that she also has other friends that she does things with.

 Yeah happens alot in Jr High!  I just tell her to call someone and ask them over or to go to the mall or something.  Usually helps.
