I know you say that the siesta suits you but perhaps she just needs to drop the nap?

DS (just 3) started nursery 2 weeks ago and has been having a nap after lunch as is so tired. But he is starting to drop this now he is getting used to the new routine.

Perhaps you can ask her to have quiet time where she can watch a movie or read books instead of sleep?

I have a 23 month old and we have had the same problem recently. I am 37 weeks pregnant and desperately love my nap in the afternoon but I have had to either make it a short one before midday or put up with her being awake until 9pm -10 pm in the evenings.
The past few nights I have cut out the nap and she has been in bed by 7pm and asleep by 7.30pm - I am finding it hard with no nap at lunch at the moment but I much prefer it to me getting all fed up and upset with her at night time when she won't go to bed.
