Lots of people start potty training around this age - it works for some but not all.
I'd wait for your DD to show clear signs that she understands that she is wet/dirty etc.
Have potties in the house and encourage her to sit on them at times, such as bathtime, when the nappy is off anyway, but don't expect too much.
Profuse, over the top praise when anything happens is also good.
Don't fret if she seems later than others, my DD was 3.5 yrs old (I tried at 2 but it was a dismal failure!) they all get there in the end.
