The Children's Commissioner has called for a review of paid parental leave, suggesting it is time to help parents to stay home for the first year of their children's lives instead of subsidising care elsewhere.

Commissioner John Angus said an increasing number of under-2s were being enrolled in childcare and for longer periods than before.
