The main objective of the study is to evaluate the level of effectiveness of the proposed computer aided instruction entitled "Computer Aided Tool in Science for Kindergarten Education" according to the perception of the respondents. As the major step in the proposed research study computer aided instruction, the researcher used the descriptive research design and random sampling method. The statistical tools such as frequency distribution, percentage distribution and the weighted arithmetic mean were utilized in order to analyse and interpret the data gathered. T-test was also used to determine if there exist a significant difference on the level of effectiveness of the proposed system according to classification of the respondents. As to the level of effectiveness of the proposed computer aided instruction as to the teachers' respondents they rated 4.71, which is interpreted as Highly Effective in terms of the entire criterion used while according to pupils' respondents, they rated 4.81 with is interpreted as Highly Effective. The hypothesis tested between the two classifications of the respondents is -0.15, describes that there is no significant difference between the two classifications of respondents. The proposed system provides technology enhanced learning in science that leads Kindergarten pupils develop the foundation necessary for the future academic success.
