If you haven't already stopped his naps, that's where I'd start, along with a daily routine that has plenty of activity and consistent wake and bedtimes. A bedtime routine will help as well. About 20 minutes prior to bed my DD takes a warm bath or shower, brushes her teeth, uses the potty and then we read a book and relax together in her chair for about 5 minutes either singing, chatting or just listening to her sound machine.

My 3-year old goes to bed at 6:30 pm because she wakes up around 6 am and 12 active hours is plenty for her (and me). If she slept later in the mornings (that would actually be nice), I would adjust her bedtime accordingly.
