Who They Are & How They Help



National Centre for Childhood Grief (NCCG) provides compassion, understanding and support for children grieving significant losses in their lives.

The death of a loved person is one of life’s most painful experiences. NCCG is there for kids during this time, providing understanding, compassion and support.

National Centre for Childhood Grief

Children's grief is expressed in their own way

Navigating The Grief Experience

Over the years, I’ve worked with many families who have introduced a fairy garden to their space during a time of grief. In the midst of grief, a fairy garden can offer

  • A quiet space. Everyone experiences grief differently and children, in particular, can find both their own and others emotions overwhelming.
  • A safe space. Children need time and a safe space to express their feelings. 
  • Routine. Fairy gardens require some maintenence (e.g. watering, ornament care). Routine and responsibility generates a feeling of safety and predictability.
  • Communication. Families who work together on a fairy garden can find effective ways to communicate and process emotions together.
  • Creative expression. Words are wonderful but sometimes we don’t know the right ones to use, there are too many, there are not enough, they get stuck, they get mixed up or they just dont feel right. Creative ways of expression such as fairy gardening can help family members to process and express their grief.

Many of the families I’ve met create traditions and annual events around their fairy gardens.

It’s a special kind of magic.

So, when I got the call from my friends at Better Homes & Gardens to say that they were wrapping up season 25 with an extra special fairy garden makeover at The National Centre for Childhood Grief, there was only two things to say. “Count me in!” and “How can I help?”

Here’s a little walk through of Better Homes & Gardens Season 25, Ep 44 season finale fairy garden makeover at the NCCG.
