My four year old won't behave at daycare.

My daughter just turned four and is a terror at daycare. She refuses to listen, doesn't share, and is constantly getting into trouble. On a daily basis I am told that my daughter has done something wrong. Daycare has asked repeatedly about her behavior at home, which is fine. Occasionally, I have problems with my daughter at home, but most of the time she is fine and well behaved. The only interaction she has with other kids is at daycare, and that is what seems to be her problem. How do I handle this problem? I feel that punishing her at home after the fact does not work. I have taken toys away, screamed and yelled, etc. to no avail. Each time I fight with her about this her response is, "I'll listen tomorrow. I won't fight. I'll behave" which she never does. I am at wits end. How do I get my child to behave when other children are around? How do I punish her for behavior that I have not witnessed?
