How long does it take for a 3yr old to adjust to preschool? Could she just not be ready?

My daughter started pre k on August 10th. Yesterday she still cried and threw a tantrum when she got to school. She wont participate in any classroom activities. Her teacher said that she follow her around everywhere, pulls her desk closer to the teacher's, and whines and cries until nap time. She knows that after nap time its time to leave. Help! I wonder if she's just not ready or will it take more time?

I hope she is better now. Some kids do not adjust that fast to new situation. Some schools provide psychologist services ( I live in canada) but where you don't have it available perhaps your family doc could help with the evaluation (determining if she is ready for preK).
