You and your daughter are going to be influenced by the rink culture. if everyone skates singles and has three lessons a week with StarCoach and a solo and also skates on the synchro team, and they're all bff's, it's hard to say no. We went with a coach who didn't push synchro, who gave semi and group lessons and also skated seasonally. -->outcast section of the viewing room. But if I had to give advice, I'd say do the contract ice for a while but with a goal in mind, like tests attempted. Synchro can wait.
