No glue vinyl flooring in a wide room?

We converted our double car garage into a day care room. I currently have commercial carpet that needs to be replaced. I thought about the peel and stick Amrstrong vinyl planks. I was able to see it in a home with two children and I did not like the scratches that showed. We went to HD and they showed us some vinyl flooring that I really liked. I tried to scuff it up and it did not show the scratches. My only concern was that it is a no glue and we would have a seam in the middle of our room. Will this flooring shift with all the movement in the room? I like that the vinyl has more thickness and cushion than the traditional glue downs that I looked at.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

I would be concerned about the seam. And they call it cushioned vinyl, but if children fall on it, on concrete, it won't offer much protection. I personally would go back with carpet.
