Abstract: Mobile learning for preschoolers has evolved into a significant area of research. This paper reports on the Systematic Literature Review (SLR) conducted to investigate the state-of-art in mobile learning for preschoolers. SLR was performed using research papers extracted from eight commonly used databases. A total of 72 papers were retrieved, of which 54 papers were relevant to our study. The results highlighted an upward publication trend, good quality studies published in the domain, and mobile applications like games, language and literacy, and art and colouring developed for preschoolers. Finally, the paper concludes by identifying the research gap and providing avenues for future research.

Keywords: mobile learning; preschool; systematic literature review.
