Is there a way that I can restrict texting on my daughter's iPhone 6 at night (other than simply taking the phone away each night). I've got parental controls setup for my WiFi network, but she still gets data through Koodo cellular network.

Unfortunately, there's no such thing! And as a kid, whatever barrier you put, he will find a way to surpass them.

You can't control her texts/ talk usage. I agree with Robert that they always find a way to workaround

-"she still gets data through Koodo cellular network. "
But, at least you can control her mobile data usage.
If you want to block her data after she used up her data limit, you can add "data block add-on"(You will need to monitering her usage through self serve )
You need to call Koodo to add this add on, but you can remove it through self serve once new billing cycle started.
I have 2kids and I'm monitering their data usage. And they pay me their data overage charge .They don't want to pay me a big amount, so they usually become more carefull after I gave them warning ;)
