Adjusting to school

We need help! Our 5 year old daughter has still not adjusted to pre-k. She is used to being away from us while we're at work. She used to attend a home based daycare and now is in a Pre-K thru 10th grade size private school. This is not her 1st school experience either. This is her 2nd yr of preschool. She cries uncontrollably for most of the school and daycare day. She has set in her mind she will not have fun and doesn't want to be there. What do we do? We've tried negative discipline as well as positive reinforcement. Teachers think she'll be ok, but I am becoming tired of the daily fight that started last September. Now what?
