APA does not require a Table of Contents, nor does it give guidelines on their format. 

Nevertheless, know that a table of contents is like a roadmap of your paper.  It should contain all the headings in the body, worded exactly as they appear within.  Be sure to include appendices.  The left and right hand sides should line up uniformly. 

To help meet "APA style" requirements, simply use APA's formatting: 1 inch margins, 12pt Times New Roman font, and standard double spacing.
