Does she like her bed? DD hated her toddler bed and would not sleep in it anymore. So we bought her a queen size bed. Fixed that problem right away. She doesn't run to our room anymore and climb into our bed.

I bought my 4 year old a bed tent. he loves it, been sleeping in the bed every night for the past four nights! No issues at all.

A new environment can be scary. Does she have a nightlight? does she say she's scared or give any reason why she is out of bed?

but if she wakes up she might be scared. I would try a nightlight. my DD didn't want to sleep in her room either when we first moved but once I got her a nightlight she doesn't mind at all. she also has a flashlight on her bedside table if she feels the need to look into a dark corner or something.
