We have children from 3-12 years old, 7 all together and i would say keep moving her back to her bed. Our 3 year old like to get up and climb in his brothers bed and he is very sneaky about it! We just remind him he needs to sleep in his own bed and then continuously move him back to his own bed. Somedays we move him 5 times others not at all, but i do have to say it is getting better.

my 3 yr old son is the exact same way...he'd rather sleep on the sofa or in our bed than his...ive tried sleeping in his bed with him till he falls asleep but soon as i move to gt out he wakes up.....when hes in our bed i move him back so many times i cant count but he STILL wont sleep in his bed....and i dont see him doing it any time soon...we just deal with it..

I have a five yr old daughter and as soon as she falls asleep in our bed my husband moves her to her bed, sometimes she wakes up in the middle of the night and goes to our bed. But we just keep on taking her back. Hopefully shell get use to her bed soon

I agree with Samantha.... you have allowed your 3 year old in your bed to sleep, so have set the pattern for where she sleeps. You now have the task of undoing what you have taught her is ok. Put her in her bed, and continue to place her back there everytime she gets out, it might take a while for her to get the message, but if you don't give in this method usually gets good results.
Good luck x
