That will depend on your artistic desires.

Personally I would start with f/5.6 and adjust from there to get the depth of field I wanted (probably more shallow).

I would start with 1/125 (or higher) to freeze most of the child's motion, assuming she is relatively stationary. Adjust as needed to get the bubble effects you are looking for.

Lastly, I would adjust the ISO to whatever level was needed to make the above settings work.

Don't be afraid to experiment. Digital film is cheap.
