For years I used OurPact to limit my kids screen time. But it now seems very different to how I remember it. ( not used for couple yrs)

Looking for similar fir 6yo dd and her iPad. Something to shut the apps down at a certain time. And something to ensure she can't download apps without checking with me.

Anyone advise what app would be best to use for this please?

If you will be with DD when she is using iPad, you can enable guided access when you give it to her. This prevents her from exiting the app that you have "enabled".

Not exactly what you described but I find it useful with my DS as it doesn't allow him to access apps that are already on there (vs just not downloading new ones).

I use SafeLagoon with my daughters phones but it could work differently on apple devices.
Have you seen Family Sharing by apple? That should be a built-in parental control, maybe it would be enough for you.
