How do you get your 5 year old to go to bed on time on a school night?

I have a 5 yr old daughter who just started kindergarten. She does not take naps in school or when she gets home. She comes home do homework and eat then watch a little tv. When its bedtime, she goes in her room and lay down to just prop her feet on the wall and sing songs to herself til about 2 in the morning. What do I do?

We wear them out so they are exhausted!! We have a bedtime routine when school's in session and we try to stick to it on nonschool days also. Very little television, especially after dinner. We have dinner, play a game or read or go for a walk, take baths, read a nighttime story and then it's bedtime. No lights or television allowed in the room.
