I wouldn't delete your account as that will be the 'main' admin account to the PC to the otherwise 'hidden' one. As Jock1e says, right bottom with mouse cursor, settings, 'change PC settings', accounts, other accounts, then add an account for your daughter using a Microsoft email account.

Always have two admin accounts on a PC/Laptop in case of a profile corruption.

Although your account will be dormant, when your daughter uses the Laptop, it is still available if problems arises.
