I would recommend daycare routine wise but make sure you follow it up with the same routine at home.
I think persistence would be the key.
Maybe you can try putting her to bed earlier gradually, say ten mins before her usual 11-12 bedtime and gradually make it earlier over the weeks?
My eldest - 19 months is in bed 8-8.30pm & up 8-9am, but this works for us as dh works late nights & I wait up for him. Plus I'm not a morning person so a lie in is nice!

I HAVE to wake our daughter up by 5.30/6 am to have any hope of a nap at 12-2 then bed at 7.30/8.
So days I wake her up it works out but days my DH is in charge cos I've gone for a walk or whatever he doesn't then we have a battle on our hands.
Drives me mental.

Most frustrating though is that she's recently learned to turn on the table lamp in her room so she'll often do that in the very early hours of the morn, talk to herself for a while and then go back to sleep. She already has a little nightlight so I don't know what that's all about...

We have 2 & 4 year old. They get into bed at 7, have a story or two, and are left to go to sleep by 7.15.

My 2 year old goes to bed at 8:30 with my other kids. She is usually sleeping by 9. She also has a 2 hour nap in the afternoon.

Hugs Breebee. Sounds like your lo is in the lovely stage where they are starting to give up naps but still kinda need one.
A rest time on the couch with a movie instead of a nap sometimes helps.

I have never let my kids sleep late in the day. They must be up by 3 pm so if they don't go to sleep until 2pm I wake them after an hour. I had to cut out DS day sleep when he hit two as although he still wNted to nap it meant he was up until 8 at night. Now he is in bed out like a light at 6pm.
