In brief: Not contagious

You can't catch early onset puberty from someone.
That said, the most common cause of early onset puberty is unknown. A smaller percentage of kids with early onset puberty have familial tendencies, pituitary and brain abnormalities.

In brief: You won't catch it

This is not something you can catch from her. The condition is quite rare, so don't worry.
She needs to see her physician and be evaluated.
