Window Height

Home built in 2002. 2 windows in the 1st floor office room where only about 8-12 inches from floor. All the others were at the normal height of a window.
It just seemed strange to be so low.

Are the any codes that state the minimum height of the bottom of a window from the floor. Would this be an issue??

The pictures show the low windows and the normal windows.

I see low windows in new construction quite a bit.

I simply recommend safety rails for child safety.
