Joe, you've played it all well so far. Maybe wrap your FV in a blanket, quilt, sleeping bag to insulate it against temperature drops at night. This link is one of the best write ups for brewing kits, follow this and you'll be just fine.

The Coopers Lager kit (not their Euro lager) comes with an ale yeast so if you can keep your brew at a room at a steady 19-20*C it will be fine.

Finally Coopers kit yeasts are usually quite adequate for their needs and imo really don't need substituting. The only time they might need a little help is if you are fermenting the Euro lager or their 86day pilsner which are supplied with lager yeasts and if fermented at low lager fermentation temperatures may need additional lager yeast to ensure they ferment out as intended
