If your daughter is still kid, you will have to face numerous questions to satisfy the immigration authority to bring her alone.
Your each family member is on independent visa therefore they can travel independently. If it is baby then for father has to have valid reason to travel alone with baby.

Perhaps his wife has commitments back home and he wants to bring his daughter over first for schooling etc
How old your daughter is? Do you have visa for both your wife & daughter? I think you got family Residence Permit visa right?
you can do both at the same time
