Only you can tell when you think sexual activity may become an issue. Purple has given good advice. A Pill such as Triphasil would be okay.

Best wishes

She should only start on contraceptives when she is sexually active. This is really her decision. You can give her guidance on it and speak about your family''s moral values, but it is her body. Rather make it possible that when she does start a sexual relationship (or you notice she is in a serious relationship with one particular boy) that both of you are able to bring up contraceptives at that time.
