This might sound a bit odd, but could you get her to do a little bit of exercise shortly before bed-time? -Jumping jacks, or rolling on the floor/climbing up and down a stair or similar as part of a game with you.

DSis has two v. active children and swears that even getting them to do five minutes of this makes a huge difference to how they sleep at night (her second one was v.similar in sleep patterns to your DD from the sounds of it).
