I highly recommend Buderim... it ticks all the boxes that you are asking for... it isn't beachside but you are only a ten minute drive to the beach so it's kind of the same. It's roughly a 20-25min drive to Caloundra (depending on what side of Buderim you live on). It has beautiful schools/daycare centre and there are also great schools at sippy downs which is close... it is a mix of older population and lots of young families. Good luck where ever you choose, best decision we ever made moving from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast.
