This study aimed at investigating the perceptions of student teachers towards using information and communications technology (ICT) in their teaching practices. Data were collected from 86 student teachers by means of a questionnaire and later interviews with 12 student teachers. The findings of the study indicated that, although student teachers acknowledge the role of ICT in kindergarten children’s development, most of them do not use ICT in their teaching practices. Findings revealed that the inadequate equipments were found to be the main reasons for not using ICT. Moreover, student teachers mentioned that the cooperative teachers do not pay attention to computer center in the classrooms nor they encourage them to use ICT in their actual practices. These findings were discussed and implications were set accordingly.
