Preschool is not mandatory in any state.

Here is Home School Legal Defense Association's analysis of AZ law. According to this, your dd will not be compulsory school age until September 1, 2012. That would be the first year you'd have to file an affidavit.

Your daughter is learning all the time, of course. No one can legislate how or when a child will learn. :)
