No big drinks after 4pm, just sips if needed. Potty before bath, and again before bed.

Plastic sheet then cotton sheet then plastic sheet then cotton sheet, so each set can be whipped off in the night if wet, without fuss, and undies or PJ bottoms only, no nappy.

Then she'll feel the wet and learn more quickly than having a nappy soaking it up for her.

Patience and time.

My mum used to get us up in the middle of the night and put us on the toilet (practically in our sleep) and then put us back to bed. I'm not sure how good an idea this is, as it set our bladders to that size, so we would need to go at that time, which is not good.
