I use dansgaurdian in conjuction with squid for this and am very happy with
it.  It's quite cool in that it doens't just check against a list of known
bad sites but also looks at whats actually in a page to decide if it should
be allowed or not.  I don't know if it does the varying levels of filtering
based on source IP address that you're talking about though since I use
iptables and trasparent proxying for that.  Computeres to be filtered are
proxyied by dansguardin, and computers belonging to grownups are proxyied by
squid.

P.S.  There is also squidguard that may be worth investigating...
