Transitioning from crib to toddler bed. Any advice?

I tried last night to see how my daughter would take to the toddler bed. She loved going up and down the bed and kept yelling for me to come sit on the bed with her as she appeared really proud of herself
When it came down to lights out and sleep time, every 5 minutes she was getting up standing at her door screaming for me to open it and trying to stay awake. Since she knows she can move around now and be mobile, she has no interest in staying on mattress.

I put her back in her crib for the night and gave up, but eventually soon my day care is placing her onto the cot from crib to prepare her for moving into the toddler room with the other children, so I need to start introducing this to her and she seems ready enough.

Anyone with similar experience? How did you handle it? did you just keep placing her back onto the bed and walking away?
