Put this in your preamble for the wording (I'm surprised you didn't find
this one):

For the centering you can either play with the following:

\newcommand\tableofcontents{%
\section*{\contentsname
\@mkboth{%
\MakeUppercase\contentsname}{\MakeUppercase\contentsname}}%
\@starttoc{toc}%
}

Or use the "tocloft" package (again, I'm surprised you didn't find it).
