Child does not sleep and I am loosing the plot

My 2.7 yr old has never been the best sleeper and always an early riser however recently this has got even earlier. She is awake most days from 4:10-4:40. I take her to the toilet as she shouts she wants a wee. I then take her back to bed but she will not go back to sleep and spends the next hour of so shouting and demanding. My husband won't deal with her as he has to get up around 5:15 to go to work and wants his sleep. I have tried pretty much everything but am at my wits end. I also have a 4 year old whom my little one wakes up with her screaming. The knock on effect is that her behaviour is horrific and I too am in a bad mood for the day. I have lived this nightmare for nearly 3 years and am desperate to have a proper uninterrupted nights sleep past 5am. She is fully potty trained and have tried lifting at 10/10:30 but she refuses to go. I have used for clocks, reward charts, taking things away and NOTHING seems to make a difference. Napping only takes place if she falls asleep in the car for a max of 20 mins. She attends nursery 2 full days and 3 half days too. Help help help please???
