At this age she needs to get into a good routine and you need to stick to it. If you are wanting to train her to sleep during certain times of the day for naps then do so. If she does sleep late for some reason like a late night before because of activities do not give her a long nap in the afternoon. No child needs a 3.5 hour nap in the afternoon nor does she need much of one in the morning either. The schedule I see a lot of kids this age get if they are early risers is a mid morning nap if at all. A lot of kids this age should nap from more like 12 pm to 2 pm and no more. At this age she should stay up more in the mornings if not and she gets up early like say 6 or 7 let her have a short nap of an hour or so. What time is she going to bed at night? If she is in bed at 6 or 7 pm and sleeps until that same hour of the morning she should not need a morning nap.
