Nocturnal daughter :(

My daughter is only six years old, but she's already turning very nocturnal. I know it runs in the family, because my husband and I are exactly the same, that's why we're both sat here at three in the morning, not even remotely tired!
And even though I know why she does it (whether it's actually in her genes, or whether we've somehow raised her to be like this), it doesn't make it any easier to get her out of the habit. My parents never stopped me when I was younger, they never really tried, and as a result, whenever the school holidays came along I would sleep from five or six in the morning till three in the afternoon. I would probably still do that now if the kids didn't get me up at the crack of dawn. I don't want my daughter turning the same way as I have, but I honestly don't know what to do!!!
Right now we're in our summer house, and our study is on the kids' corridor, so we know when they're up and about, and she has passed by three times in the last hour, wandering around! We never really knew the extent of the problem in our other house because we weren't there to see it! I'm so desperate just to get her to sleep normally! Has anyone had any similar experiences?
Anyway, thanks for hearing me out :), just venting I guess.
