    As YeahYeahYeah said, I'd only like simple editing to enhance the quality, not too much.

    I'd rather one printed class photo and then a digital file of my child.

    I think $40 maximum is reasonable, preferably with cheaper options.

    This year at daycare I paid $25 for a sheet of various sizes of the same photo. We were able to bring in our school aged kids to be in the photo. They had more expensive packages available too, including a class photo. The sheet suits us perfectly because we cut it up and give to the grandparents and also put one up on our wall. We could do with about half the number of photos though, we never use them all up. I never bother getting the class photo. $25 is about as much as I want to pay for what we get. I admire the day-care photographers so much, it's a skill to get those little people sitting still and happy!

    So everyone who has responded so far seems to have a preference for a budget/basic offering. Anyone out there who actually appreciates a more premium offering and the opportunity to get studio quality shots? If you've purchased a larger premium package, what was behind your choice?

    See, I don't see daycare/kindergarten as the place where my child's professional photos will be done. It's a bit like school photos where you want good photos, but you don't need them to be state of the art super duper awesome. Just a nice photo to remember their year there.

    I class daycare/kindy photos as regular school photos also and am happy to pay for a class photo and one individual to mark the year. I dont need/want anything fancy as it will just go in their school year book.
    If Im going to be paying alot for premium photos I would want them to be family photos which I would display

    I would pay a max of $30 for an individual and class photo. I don't need multiples as I will scan anyway. My nearby kindy packages start at $25. I don't want professional photos from kindy., I go every year and get a family shot taken in a studio... Using a cheap scoupon etc.

    I think i just got ripped off cause I just paid $70 for DS - 4 (or maybe 5) individual shots all presented in a beautiful book, an 8x12 and digital prints. Oh and class photo

    DD, first year st school, was 30 for a class and individual shot

    Another one who thinks of them as school photos and expect a $25ish package with an individual and a class/group photo.

    I don't expect any editing, so long as my child's eyes are open and they have to food on their face in the individual one, then I'm happy.

    DD's childcare doesn't give options. It's 1 package $25 which includes 3 5x7 photos (different shots) and a sheet with an individual pic of each child

    If I'm going to pay for premium photos, I want them to be family photos, not just a photo of one child.
