My kid sometimes incidentally uninstalls some apps from my SM-T311. I have tried several locking apps like SmartLock, Perfect App Lock etc... with app uninstall locking but these locking apps do not work well. I think maybe due to Kitkat as these work like champ on my old 4.2.2 phone.

Is there any way to lock uninstall apps then?

App lock works, register to an email address to unlock the ability to prevent Uninstallation of app lock. I use it on my teenagers smart phone. Best locking app I have found

I337 stock NC1, rooted, unlocked
Sm-T537A NE1stock, rooted

I'm using CMsecurity for my kid tab. there's a good feature AppsLock. this app with pattern security can blocking KK setting to uninstall apps and can block important apps like e-mail, SuperSU, AFwall, and root apps to open.
Child proof app i think

The only thing I can think of is to convert them into system apps with TitaniumBackup.
