Information and communication technology (ICT) is an integral part of the present world and is also making a huge impact in the field of education, including kindergarten. This literature review comprises a brief overview of different international studies from the years 2006-2017. In order to successfully meet the challenge of developing a knowledge based society, and equipping the student with the 21st century skills, there is a need to leverage the potential of ICT. This literature review analyses the way ICT can provide quality learning experiences and enhance learning outcomes for kindergarten students. The attitudes of the teachers can significantly impact the incorporation of ICT into curriculum practices as well as the quality of classroom teaching. The research also highlights the importance of appropriate training and professional development, for the teachers to efficiently synergize the elements of pedagogy and content knowledge along with technology to support student learning experiences. These findings suggests that appropriate integration of ICT with the curriculum, can be instrumental in narrowing the achievement gap, and enhancing the learning experiences of the kindergarten students.
