My child (4) dont sleep

Good day!
My child only go and sleep late and wake up early, i try to minimize sleeping during the day, but they sleep at school, She will only sleep for 6 hours and then wake up, without any other sleep.
I' ve got her in a bathroom and eat routine, and at night time she should pick up all her toys and go to her room.
She will only lie in bed for 20 minutes and then starts getting busy again. What can I do to get her sleeping more/earlier??
I think she has got insomnia, but how do i cure this?
Please help

This may not be as easy to deal with as you may want it to be. You need to get your daughter into a good bedtime routine. Set a time that you want here in bed, say 8pm and stick to this time. Read to her before she goes to sleep and keep the stories nice and peaceful. The house must be quiet and peaceful too. After finishing the story, kiss her goodnight and leave her room after putting out the light.She may not fall asleep immediately but don't let her get out of bed and play with toys.She must stay in bed. Be firm and speak in clear firm voice when you tell her what you want her to do.
